Oji Papéis Especiais to expand thermal paper capacity in Brazil
(Brazil, April 06, 2016) Oji Imaging Media., a 100% subsidiary of Oji Holdings, will expand thermal paper production capacity at Oji Papéis Especiais by 10 %.
Oji Papéis’s paper mill in Piracicaba, São Paulo manufactures thermal and carbonless paper. Oji Group will invest approximately $9m (€8m) in the expansion, which is scheduled to be finalized in July 2017.
As of today, Oji Papéis Especiais is producing thermal paper from two thermal coaters, but with current production capacity, the company will not be able to satisfy the forecasted market demand in Brazil and therefore decided to increase capacity. (Source: press release)
