LUCCA, Italy, Feb. 14, 2014 (Press Release) - Forest Papir of Hungary has started up a technologically advanced new converting line supplied by Futura. The line was officially inaugurated at a ceremony at the company's Lábatlan headquarters in December.

Dedicated to roll products, the Futura installation comprises the usual key converting elements and includes a JOI embosser. The investment will allow Forest Papir to expand its range of roll products, enhance quality and increase production flexibility.

Originally a trading organisation when founded in 1994, Forest Papir today converts in-house most of the products it sells. This includes branded and private label tissue for both domestic and away-from-home use.

Forest Papir supplies Hungary, neighbouring markets and further afield with toilet tissue, kitchen towel, facial tissue and paper napkins. The company delivers to 19 countries in total.

Forest Papir has a reputation as an innovator, having introduced the 24-roll toilet paper pack to the Hungarian market, as well as the first perfumed and coloured tissue in 100-sheet packs. The company also pioneered the centre-feed multi-purpose towel concept for Hungary's retail market.
