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."
