In the Specialties business area, Ahlstrom-Munksjö will invest about Euro 4 million to rebuild a converting line of sterilization wrap being produced at its Pont Audemer plant in France, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The material is e.g. used for protecting medical garments and sterilizing instruments. The investment includes installing a new sheeter and folding line as well as automated wrapping and boxing of the finished goods. Through the investment, which will be completed by the 2Q 2019, the business will improve its competitiveness through higher efficiency and shorter lead times.
