International technology Group Andritz, Austria, has received an order from First Quality Tissue to supply a PrimeLineTAD tissue machine with complete stock preparation for its mill in Lock Haven, Pa., USA. Startup is scheduled for 2019.

The TAD (Through-Air-Drying) tissue machine has a capacity of approximately 70,000 tpy. The improved softness, absorbency, and bulk generated by the TAD technology give these products superiority over products made using conventional processes, Andritz notes.  Andritz has supplied two TAD machines previously to First Quality Tissue’s Lock Haven mill.

First Quality Tissue, which markets its products under the brand name PlentyTM, is one of the leading private label producers worldwide of TAD premium quality tissue and towel products. It currently operates five tissue machines in the U.S. (two at Lock Haven and three at Anderson, S.C.).
