The new converting plant of Swedish Tissue (the Swedish Sofidel subsidiary) in Kisa (SE) is fully operational

The new converting plant of Swedish Tissue (the Swedish Sofidel subsidiary) in Kisa (SE) is fully operational

Today the plant is the most automated production site of the Sofidel Group. The innovative solutions integrated into production process have allowed the company to save approximately 40% of space.

Sofidel is pleased to announce that the upgrading works at Swedish Tissue site in Kisa have been concluded.

The new and innovative converting plant is now fully operational with two active production lines: the first line is focused on toilet tissues, whilst the second line can produce both kitchen towels and toilet tissues. Works began in January 2014 and completed in June, when the initial tests were carried out.

This project was particularly challenging as its implementation involved the diversion of the Kisa river by approximately 300 meters.

The plant is also distinguished for the extremely innovative choices made in terms of automation of the production process. By adapting techniques that have as yet been mainly used in the food & beverage sector, Sofidel developed an automatic reel conveying system process for the first time in its history, which transfers them

between the paper mill and the converting plant, and the fully automated control system of the finished product: from the line ends to the loading bays via the warehouse. This choice has saved approximately 40% of the space.

As for production, the plant produces Private Label products intended for the Nordic markets, in particular: Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Currently, the investment has required the recruitment of 25 new resources. With over 100 years since its establishment, Swedish Tissue represents a historical paper production site. The construction of the new converting plant is a significant indication of how important this production company is for Sofidel and demonstrates the company’s desire to strengthen its position in the Nordic countries.
