Recard will supply the new 30,000-metric tpy tissue machine to the historic Klippans Bruk company for its Klippan facilities in Sweden. Startup of the complete turnkey plant, in a 3,200-mm format and a speed of 1,700 m/min, is scheduled for summer 2019.

The Klippan mill specializes in the production of paper for colored table napkins that it supplies to customers worldwide. With the addition of the new machine by Recard that will flank another machine already in operation production will increase fourfold. A 15-million euro investment will allow the mill to increase staff by 20-25 new employees and to strengthen its position in the market.

Klippan nurtures a long tradition of papermaking. It began in 1573 when renowned astronomer Tycho Brahe's cousin started producing paper near the monastery at Herrevadskloster. In that time, this area of Sweden belonged to Denmark and the mill was in fact Denmark’s very first paper mill. In 1658 it became Swedish through the peace at Roskilde.

In the 1700s the mill moved to new premises by the river Rönne, where it remains still today. In 1832 the country’s first paper machine was installed at Klippan Mill. It was soon followed by several more. Through the years the paper products have varied following the markets requests. For example, newsprint, paper for stamps and copy paper have all been produced here.

In 1962 the production of tissue for napkins started at Klippan Mill and with more than 50 years of experience, producing tissue Klippan's Bruk is now one of the worlds largest leading producers of deep-colored tissue.
