The supply included a Crescent Former machine in 1500-mpm speed, 2850 mm net paper width, with a production capacity of 78 tpd, equipped with a virgin fiber stock preparation line and rewinder with three backstands and calendar.

The Crescent Former is actually an addition to the suction breast roll manufactured by Recard for the company in 1989, the year in which Alex Converta, founded in 1978, opened its facilities in Borg el Arab El Guedeeda, in Alexandria.

The Egyptian company is involved in the production of white and colored tissue paper, but also in its converting into hygiene paper products (facial tissue, handkerchiefs, toilet rolls, table napkins, kitchen towels) and sanitary towels. In 2016 it was purchased by Habibco General Trading Co., the company that had signed the contract for the new plant with Recard.
