tissue machine in Russia
23 Jul 2020 − 

Turkish tissue producer Hayat Kimya has again ordered a tissue machine from Valmet. This time the Turkish company wants to grow further in Russia, where it already operates two tissue machines.

According to Valmet, Hayat Kimya is installing its first TM at its new mill outside Moscow. The machine reportedly has a capacity of 70,000 tpy at a width of 5.6 m and a running speed of 2,200 m/min. It produces fresh fibre-based tissue for facial tissues, toilet paper and paper towels.

Hayat Kimya has been present on the Russian market since 2015 and already operates one mill there - the Alabuga mill. It has a capacity of 14,000 tpy and produces toilet paper, paper napkins, kitchen towels and handkerchiefs.

The company operates a total of 18 plants and employs about 8,000 people. And it is driving its growth at great speed. Hayat Kimya has been constantly installing new machines since its entry on the market 14 years ago. Only in May it was announced that the company will also install a new TM at the Turkish plant in Mersin. The machine, which has a capacity of 70,000 tpy, is scheduled to go into operation in 2021. Hayat Kimya already describes itself as the largest tissue producer in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa.
