A joint venture formed by Olayan Group, Saudi Arabia, and Kimberly-Clark Corp., Dallas, Texas, USA, has ordered a turn-key tissue production line to be installed at its Bahrain mill. The new Bahrain TM 2 line, to be supplied by Voith Paper, Germany, will be located in Isa Town, close to the capital of Manama.

Olayan, one of the largest industrial groups in Saudi Arabia, and Kimberly-Clark, the biggest tissue producer worldwide, have been working together for decades. The TM 2 (details not yet disclosed) will be their second joint venture tissue machine in Bahrain. With the new machine, they intend to consolidate their position in the market.
