TASSIGNANO CAPANNORI, Italy, April 2, 2015 (Press Release) -

Sold in April 2014 and installed a few months later, the new pope reel for the Tissue Machine at Kimberly-Clark Romagnano Sesia has met all production expectations and also underscored the partnership between the two companies. A.Celli Paper has demonstrated not only its level of technology and quality as a supplier, but also its professionalism and dedication to excellence.

The customer has stated its satisfaction with the product and with the post-sales service guaranteed by the A.Celli staff that meets their demands thanks to the technical support offered to answer the diverse needs of a production scenario.

"We are very pleased", states K-C Romagnano. "A.Celli was an optimal choice. Together, we developed the project since the very beginning and perfected it step after step. We scheduled tests at A.Celli's Lucca plant and only after these in-depth trials was the pope reel shipped for installation at Romagnano Sesia." A.Celli has demonstrated top level professionalism, confirming its abilities throughout every phase of the project, but it distinguished itself in the eyes of the customer above all during assembly of the new pope reel. "Our satisfaction was further confirmed by the strict respect of the amount of machine downtime imposed by us as well as expertise with which the A.Celli team has performed this delicate and complicated rebuild, in complete agreement with the stringent safety criteria adopted by the K-C Group".

The replacement operation of the pope reel immediately gave positive results in terms of process: the tissue machine enhanced its performance, showed a clear improvement in paper turn-up efficiency and winding consistency and, consequently, a better finished product.

A successful technical intervention confirmed by optimal results!
