Voith to supply new decor paper machine in India
(Heidenheim, Germany, Nov. 11, 2016) Voith has won a new contract to supply a new decor paper machine in India — the Chandrahati PM 4 — for ITC Limited – Paperboards & Specialty Papers Division, which is India’s largest producer of graphic paper, specialty paper and cartonboard.
The new paper machine will be located in Tribeni, about 60 kilometers north of Kolkata, and will increase the company’s production capacity for decor paper.
Voith has already realized a number of projects for ITC in the past. A determining factor in awarding this latest contract was Voith’s longstanding and extensive experience in Process technology, design, installation and service. Moreover, Voith has experts on the ground in India thanks to its two offices in Kolkata and Faridabad and can therefore work quickly and easily with ITC to develop optimum solutions.
“The Chandrahati PM 4 is a transformational project, where ITC has drawn on Voith’s unique expertise and reliability. World-class decor paper will be produced through the state-of-the-art technology and equipment to be supplied by Voith Paper,” says Sanjay Singh, Divisional Chief Executive at ITC PSPD.
