Working for more than 50 years in the AFH sector, GH Production is a subsidiary of Global Hygiene Group, a French group specializing in tissue products. The company has developed many business opportunities that have allowed it to expand its market and close 2021 with a turnover of 25 million Euros. The opening of the first tissue mill in Grenoble in 2020 and an ongoing project for a new integrated site in Begles, have stimulated the company to invest in more efficient and automated lines, to follow the dynamic of the group. The customer’s need on this project was to complete the automation of two converting lines that dealt with different products and whose end-of-line was managed manually. One, in particular, dealt with heavy products and, for both, the spaces available were limited.
Experience, qualified resources and continuous research
At the beginning of its history, MacDue produced only standalone machines. During the last ten years, we established ourselves as leaders in the industrial field for complete lines too. We built a strong reputation on this offer but decided to increase our effort to cover every aspect of product handling, even just end-of-line. Having a single point of contact for the entire system has significant advantages for the customer but poses new challenges to the supplier company: potential concerns and extra variables that need an adequate structure and reliable after-sales service.
The challenge we set ourselves years ago was to offer our customers “turnkey” lines, up to the stretch wrapper. The addition of end-of-line to our offer is why we were ready to answer GH Production’s request.
