Varaka Kağit Sanayi AŞ, a member of the Albayrak Group, selected PMT for the technological sections of the rebuild of the 7.1 m wide paper machine #2 in Balikesir, Turkey.

The machine, that originally was producing newsprint and machine finished coated in Spain, will be converted to produce 1,100 tpd of test liner and white top liner at a target speed of 1,200 mpm.

On June 2, 2017 Mr. Ahmet Taşcı, General Manager of Varaka, Mr. David Dostal, Chairman of the Board of PAPCEL and Mr. Valter Canelli, Sales Director of PMT, signed the contract that includes a ÆGO™FLX SHOE and a ÆGO™STREAM S.


This is the first capital project of the new PMT S.R.L., former PMT Italia S.p.A., just two weeks after the acquisition by Papcel.


PMT is still operating in Pinerolo, Turin - Italy, where its employees have been working before under the name of Beloit Italia and later as PMT Italia.
