Vajda Papír orders new tissue machine for mill in Hungary

20 Aug 2021 − 

Vajda Papír is expanding its tissue paper capacities in Hungary. Until 2018, its activities in the country were limited to converting operations. Now, the company will install its second tissue line.

Hungarian tissue products manufacturer Vajda Papír will install a new tissue machine at its Dunaföldvár mill near Budapest. Toscotec reports that the company has placed an order for a tissue line with a capacity of more than 80,000 tpy. The machine will have a working width of 5,600 mm and an operating speed of 2,200 m/min. According to Toscotec, it is scheduled to come online in the first half of 2022.

The Dunaföldvár mill was commissioned in 2018 and is described by Vajda Papír as Hungary's biggest integrated tissue mill. It houses Vajda Papír's only tissue paper machine in the country, which has a capacity of around 30,000 tpy. Converting capacities of the site amount to 10,000 tpy. The new investment therefore represents a substantial capacity increase for the mill and the company.

Vajda Papír operates two other converting sites in Hungary, which are located in Budapest and Székesfehérvár. Together with Dunaföldvár, the mills have a capacity of 110,000 tpy of toilet tissue, handkerchiefs, towels and napkins. Vajda Papír also runs an integrated tissue and converting plant in Drammen, Norway, which can produce 22,000 tpy of tissue paper and has a converting capacity of 30,000 tpy. Vajda Papír owns the brands Ooops, Sindy, Star and Lilla and distributes its products to the consumer and Away-From-Home markets in Eastern Europe.
