Barcelona Carton has added virgin-fibre board to its portfolio. The board producer started production in September. By next year, the company also plans to increase capacity of the machine by 10,000 tpy.
Barcelona Carton has started with the production of GC board at its only machine and is planning to gradually increase the share of virgin-fibre board in total output. The company told EUWID that after several tests, the plant has been producing marketable GC II board since the beginning of September. Currently, 5% of the machine's output is GC board, according to Barcelona Carton. This share is to be increased to 10% by next year.
Barcelona Carton has recently carried out several investments at its plant. After the installation of a new shoe press, which is planned to be carried out in January 2017, the machine's production capacity will be increased from currently 170,000 tpy to 180,000 tpy of board. Further investments are planned for 2018, according to Barcelona Carton.
