Customer: Lecta, Leitza plant
Production: speciality papers
Start-up: at the beginning of 2018
Characteristics: Lecta substitutes existing P1 coating machine for thermal paper with a new line. More than 20 Million Euro will be invested in new thermal facilities which include a Voith coating machine and follows on from the complete modernization of the coating preparation kitchen.
Details: the investment is designed to improve industrial efficiency, broaden the product range and boost self-consumption as a result of growing demand for thermal self- adhesive papers in e-commerce and other labeling applications. This is part of Lecta’s Strategic Plan aimed at diversifying business and reinforcing its specialty papers and reducing the production capacity of coated woodfree paper.
