A €25 million investment in its Pistoia plant in Italy includes the construction of a new building over 10,000 square meters, which will provide space for a new airthrough bonding line fully equipped with an automatic packaging system.
The new airthrough bonding line has been engineered according to Texsus know-how to reach a high level of productivity for high grammage and multistructured ADLs says the comThe line will be used to further develop the new generation of ADL that Texsus has already launched in the market as Multifunctional Acquitex.
Also part of its expansion plan, Texsus will upgrade one of its existing airthrough bonding lines in order to better comply with the market’s request for soft topsheet. This line will be equipped with a proprietary system to obtain special embossing directly on the production line and will allow a further step in the development of Texsus Softex plain and embossed topsheet, which is already available in different designs and treatments.
