Brazil pulp and paper manufacturer Suzano has announced a Real425 million investment in two tissue paper machines, each with capacity to produce 60,000tpy, according to Tissue World Magazine.

One paper machine will be installed at its Mucuri plant and the other one at the Imperatriz unit – both aimed at supplying toilet paper converters in the northeast region of Brazil. Suzano CEO Walter Schalka said, as quoted by Tissue World Magazine: “We want to sell jumbo rolls to national and international clients that want to operate in northeast Brazil, then they will be able to sell toilet paper wherever they want. This way, we’ll avoid the migration of jumbo rolls from southeast to northeast Brazil, which has a high cost.”

Start-up for the two new plants is scheduled for the third and fourth quarter of 2017.
