This year the Italian supplier is also delivering two AHEAD-2.0M tissue machines to Vinda’s new Yangjiang mill in Guangdong.

Toscotec will be there with today’s best available tissue technology, including our latest advancements. I am confident that Vinda will appreciate the benefits of the AHEAD-2.0M in terms of both tissue quality and consumptions.”
