LITOVEL, Czech Republic, March 27, 2019 (Press Release) -In 2015 PAPCEL signed an important contract for reconstruction of two paper machines with a national company NEPA, India.

Later in 2016 PAPCEL signed another contract with the same company for a delivery of new rewinder for paper machine No. 2 and reconstruction of the existing rewinder on paper machine No. 1. These deliveries of machinery equipment were carried out during 2016-2017. The project is a combination of PAPCEL‘s deliveries alongside local deliveries in India. In 2018 the project was paused by the customer.
