Spartak to install tissue converting line in Belarus

BRUSSELS, July 31, 2013 (RISI) - The Spartak paper mill is set to install a new tissue converting line at its mill in Shklov, Belarus.

The Turkish-made line is scheduled to start operating in December. It will be the mill's second tissue converting line.

As part of the ongoing investment project, Spartak plans to set up a joint venture with the Czech firm Interservice. The company would partially finance the $1.8 million scheme and supply chemicals for Spartak's 17,000 tonne/yr tissue PM, which was installed last year. The potential Czech business partner would also trade part of the end products made on the new converting line - toilet paper and kitchen towels - selling these on the EU market. Spartak's spokesperson declined to reveal details regarding the business interests of Interservice but said that the firm is not related to the paper industry.

Spartak is a government-owned firm. Apart from the tissue machine, the mill houses a 35,000 tonne/yr recycled containerboard PM.
