The machine is to be converted from printing and writing grades to packaging grades.
“We are pleased to have been selected to provide this turn-key recycled fiber processing line for a major rebuild project in Southern Europe,” commented Jonathan W. Painter, president and CEO of Kadant. “This rebuild is significant in that it is part of a broader trend of converting a machine’s production from printing and writing grades to containerboard used for packaging. As these types of conversions make increasingly more economic sense to the paper industry, Kadant is well positioned to leverage its expertise and broad product offerings used in containerboard production.”
