Sofidel breaks ground for its new integrated plant in Circleville, Ohio, in the US. The Circleville plant is expected to become operational by 2018, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The plant enters its first building phase with a ceremony that draws dozens of elected officials. They include, among others, Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor, Congressman Steve Stivers, State Senator Bob Peterson, and State Representative Gary Scherer.
“Today, we celebrate the commencement of construction of the first Sofidel integrated paper mill to be built from the ground up in the United States,” said our CEO Luigi Lazzareschi.
“This is a very good location for us. Two hundred and eighty acres of relatively flat land,” Mr Lazzareschi added. “A good rail system connected to water and gas, a good airport, good logistically, lots of customer distribution centers, and a potential workforce of hard-working people.”
Sofidel Group was founded in 1966 and is now one of the world leaders in the tissue paper production market for hygienic and domestic use: toilet paper, napkins, kitchen paper, handkerchiefs and tissues).
