Suominen Nonwovens, a leading producer and developer of nonwoven roll goods, has modernized its line currently used for producing material for wound care and hygiene products.
Through the investment Suominen aims to improve overall efficiency of the rebuilt production line. In addition to that, the upgrade will cut energy and water usage and save on transportation costs, which are all sustainable benefits in line with Suominen environmental concept.
Paul-Erik Toivo, vice president and general manager of Suominen Nonwovens, is very satisfied with the result. “Through the investment we’ve been able to improve production efficiency greatly, and now have a line that can be easily adapted to produce other grades than the ones we’re producing today,” he says.
The project was implemented by Suominen’s organisation together with a German equipment supplier. The project was carried out on schedule, and start-up was successful.
