Sofidel UK Lancaster: a new start-up spells success!

March 01, 2017

The start-up of the latest-generation tissue rewinder manufactured by A.Celli Paper and sold last year in the UK to customer Sofidel, internationally renowned Italian player and tissue market leader, was concluded on 25 January 2017 with excellent results!

In just 8 months, the machine, a rewinder Mod. 865 shafted in a 3400-mm format was built, installed at the Sofidel UK facilities in Lancaster and started up to the full satisfaction of the customers who signed the acceptance certificate.

The start-up took place with no delays and is certainly an additional piece added to the mosaic of collaborations that A.Celli Paper is collecting in regards to this major Italian group.
