May 11, 2018 – ProVantage Automation, a Canadian automations systems company, has been awarded three major contracts by a Tier 1 tissue producer for the refurbishment and safety upgrades at sites in Latin and North America.

The contracts add to an already large backlog for the company.

The machine refurbishments focus on tissue machine rewinders and reels. Work includes updated drives and machine controls, the installation of third party slitting and other upgrades with a major focus on machine safety while optimizing the speed output of the machinery through modern drive systems. Speed increases on the older assets will be close to new rewinders, for a fraction of the cost.

ProVantage Automation will provide the engineering, mechatronics and modifications to the machinery while overseeing the thrid party integration and site contractors at all sites. ProV’s Atlanta applications office will provide project management support to all sites. The new concurrent contracts are being executed on a tight time line to meet the client’s own market obligations in the Americas.

This news came as ProVantage Automation was set to exhibit its newest converting automation technologies and turn-key solutions for the tissue converting industry at Tissue World Miami 2018 in March at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

ProVantage Automation specializes in developing custom factory automated solutions for companies to increase productivity, profits, and competitiveness. ProV is an industry expert in factory automation, motion control, robotic integration, machinery retrofits and overhauls, and more.
