Recard enhances its presence in Bangladesh by signing a contract for the supply of a turnkey Easy Crescent plant for Meghna Group of Industries. This is the second machine to come on stream in the country after the one supplied in 2008 to Bashundhara Paper Mills. Start-up of the new PM1 (sheet width 2850 mm, production capacity 50 tons/day, speed 1200 m/min) is scheduled for December 2016.
New contracts signed also in Europe for a confidential customer for a tissue machine: a Crescent Former (sheet width 2800 mm, production capacity 145 tons/day, speed 2000 m/min) to be supplied before the end of the year. It is the seventh Recard machine to reach the speed of 2000 m/min.
Recard’s presence is strengthened also in Latin America with the supply of the fourth machine in Mexico (the eighteenth in South America), that will be shipped by December 2016. The new PM5 for Convertipap is a turnkey plant in a 2850-mm sheet width, production capacity 90 tons/day, speed 1500 m/min.
