Specialty paper manufacturer Delfort plans to boost capacity at its Feurstein facility in Traun. A new paper machine is anticipated to start-up in 2022, according to Euwid.

Delfort’s subsidiary Franz Feurstein runs three paper machines at the specialty paper mill in Traun, Austria. Delfort plans to install a new paper machine at the site and boost the mill's capacity to more than 165,000 tpy.

The Traun mill produces cigarette paper grades and technical fine papers for packaging applications.  

The Traun mill expansion project is not the only major project currently undertaken by the Delfort group. Another project is currently being finalised at Delfort’s subsidiary OP Papírna in Olšany, Euwid reports. The new thin print paper machine PM 6 is scheduled for start up in early summer this 2020.
