Ahlstrom Increases Its Coating Capacity in Brazil
Ahlstrom, a global leader in nonwovens and specialty papers, announced the completion of an investment to increase the speed of an off-line coater at its Jacareì plant in Brazil.
The higher speed of the coater will increase the coating capacity of the plant. This investment will enable Ahlstrom to better satisfy the growing demand for coated papers and further reinforce Ahlstrom’s leadership in the Brazilian and South American markets.
The Jacareì plant mainly produces one-side coated papers for release liners, labels, packaging and other coated specialties.
A large part of Ahlstrom’s coated papers also are produced in Europe at the sites located in Stenay, France, and Osnabrück, Germany.
Stenay, Osnabrück and Jacareì plants are part of the label and processing business area. The business area operates seven production sites located in France, Germany, Italy and Brazil.
