February 03, 2011 - 01:09

ÖSCHELBRONN, Germany, Feb. 3, 2011 (Press Release) -Papelera de la Alquería of Alicante in Spain is an active family-owned company specializing in the production of folding box board. This company group acts as an overall supplier from the creation up to the implementation of displays and packaging solutions.

In order to improve the product quality, the group has continuously invested in the com-pany-owned paper mill. In the mid of 2010, the owners took the decision to rebuild the

PM 5 in order to enhance solidity and formation. After a few reference visits, Alquería's managing director Javier Bernabeu has opted for the family-owned company Bellmer.

This order has marked a great beginning for the new Spanish Bellmer subsidiary Bellmer Ibérica.

The circular distributor TURBOCirclerTMProfile and the hydraulic headbox TURBOJetterTMwith dilution water control take care of best qualities. The patented TUR-BOShakerTMwith high frequency shaking ensures better formation. A new frame in the wire section area as well as a new suction roll completed Bellmer's scope of supply. All parts have been manufactured at Bellmer's headquarters in Niefern.

Mid-January the modernized paper machine has been started successfully. Already, an upgrade of the quality can be noticed. The customer has been very satisfied with the per-formance of the German-Spanish team. Managing director Javier Bernabeu said: "We are very happy with the work done by Bellmer during the rebuild and with the technical results obtained on the quality of the paper we produce. Bellmer is a good partner for us, the direct and personal treatment has been a value to add to the know-how of Bellmer."
