UPM chooses Voith to supply labelling materials production line for UPM Changshu mill in China

UPM has chosen Voith to supply the labelling materials production line at the UPM Changshu mill in China. The agreement covers the main machinery and finishing equipment for the new machine. With the investment, UPM is strengthening its leading global position in labelling materials.
β€œThe technological know-how and competitive overall solution were decisive points for us to select Voith Paper as supplier. We are happy to start this project with them,” says Timo Heinonen, Project Director from UPM.

The new machine can produce 360,000 tonnes of labelling materials and uncoated woodfree speciality papers annually, and it will start up at the end of 2015. All grades enjoy a healthy demand outlook in Asia.
