Duni subsidiary Rexcell Tissue & Airlaid AB will invest approximately SEK 50 million ($6 million) in upgrading the airlaid machine in Skåpafors, Sweden, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The investment will increase the airlaid capacity at Rexcell by about 25% annually. The plan is to have the capacity upgrade installed during the 2Q 2018. Duni’s airlaid material is utilized in producing Duni’s key napkin brands including Dunilin® and Dunisoft®.
