Sonoco Alcore: another start-up on schedule!

March 08, 2017

Start-up of the A.Celli Paper rewinder model AC842, in a 2700-mm format and a production speed of 1200 m/min, sold last year to Sonoco Alcore, was concluded as scheduled on 16 January 2017, following the signing of the acceptance certificate.

In just 8 months, the order, that included not only the rewinder but also a complete final product handling system (overhead crane – wagon – conveyor belts) was built, installed and started up at Sonoco Alcore’s Ciriè Paper Mill in the Provincia of Turin (Italy).

Sonoco Alcore is part of the international group, Sonoco Products Company, who is one of the largest diversified global providers of a variety of consumer packaging, industrial products, protective packaging and displays and packaging supply chain services.

The choice of A.Celli Paper for the order of this new paper rewinder was well repaid by matching deadlines on deliveries and installation. The project has been very well managed by the Mill Team, in cooperation with A Celli Team all along the entire operation, from the signature of the order to the start-up of the machine,” said Massimo Basta, Plant & Sales Manager of Sonoco Alcore. “Satisfaction was further confirmed by reaching our target in established time frames.”
