Valmet to supply key containerboard machine technologies to Sri Andal in India

Valmet will supply key board making technologies to Sri Andal Paper Mills for its new containerboard making line, located in Tamil Nadu, India. The value of a project of this type and scope is typically around EUR 12-15 million.

“It was vitally important for us that the management-level relationship with Valmet was very good. Valmet has a strong reputation, and we trust that Valmet’s technology will help us to reach our high-quality targets,” says Mr. P. Subramaniam, Managing Director of Sri Andal. Containerboard segment in India is quite fragmented and largely utilizes Asian technology for board making. Sri Andal is aiming at producing high-quality containerboard with tangible efficiency improvements to enhance its competitiveness.

We are looking forward to the successful start-up of this project, which will be a game changer in the containerboard segment,” says Varun Jain, Director of India Region at Valmet.
