Based in Husqvarna, Sweden, Kadant M-Clean AB manufactures the MultiJetTM modular cleaning system used for fabric and roll cleaning. The acquisition of the high-efficiency cleaning product line expands Kadant’s water-management product line and will be sold and serviced by Kadant’s existing global sales and service network.

 “With more than 350 installations throughout Europe, China, and Asia-Pacific, the MultiJet product line adds increased depth to Kadant’s water-management offerings to the paper industry and further strengthens our market position in Europe and China,” said Jonathan W. Painter, president and CEO of Kadant Inc. “The high-performance cleaning system has demonstrated success in helping papermakers extend fabric life and improve machine runnability and we are looking forward to completing the integration of the M-Clean business into our organization.”

Kadant is a supplier to the global pulp and paper industry of stock-preparation, fluid-handling, doctoring, and water-management equipment and systems.
