Futura has announced that its Andromeda Concept high performance tissue converting technology is to be delivered to Resolute Forest Products ready for the expected start of tissue production in the first quarter of 2017.
The Andromeda concept represents a complete new converting solution which redraws the boundaries for tissue roll products converting. It was demonstrated for the first time in its complete form in FuturaLab during iT’s Tissue in Lucca last June.
Futura North America CEO Christian Viviers said: «Resolute is showing true vision by diversifying into tissue and it is our privilege to join them on that journey. The Andromeda concept has provided great inspiration since we presented it to the market in June, and Resolute is one of a number of leading North American companies which have built it into their growth plans».
