The Wepa Group will be investing in two tissue paper machines with a combined total capacity of 64,000 tons annually.

The machines will be installed at the locations in Lille/France and Marsberg/Germany. Subject to regulatory permits, the commissioning for the new paper machines is scheduled for the 3rd and 4th quarter in 2015, informs Toscotec, who will supply both machines. According to Toscotec, the total investment for both projects amounts to more than €50 million.

By expanding the production output of tissue products, Wepa will optimise the existing procurement and logistics structures in Europe, thus enhancing the competitiveness of the entire group. Thanks to more efficient manufacturing processes and economical use of energy, Wepa will be able to save resources. Furthermore, due to the reduction of acquisition of jumbo reels from 3rd party suppliers, the company can optimise the logistics flows within the European locations and compensate for increasing shipping costs.
