International technology group Andritz has received an order from Fouani Nigeria to supply two baby diaper lines for its facilities in Lagos. The lines will produce a wide range of top-class diaper products with absorbent cores made of pulp and SAP (super absorbent polymer). The target is to serve the market in Nigeria with products produced locally.

Start-up is scheduled for 2022, Andritz said in a media release.

The two baby diaper lines feature the most advanced forming technology for the absorbent core and SAP dosing. Furthermore, the lines are equipped with a web tensioning control system and quality check devices to ensure a high level of production quality. In addition, Andritz will provide services for installation and start-up of the machines.

Once the lines have been started up, Fouani will be a baby diaper manufacturer with a strong local footprint.

Fouani Nigeria Ltd was established in 2001 as a subsidiary of the Fouani Group of Companies. The company has grown to be a pioneer and the sole distributor of LG, Hisense, and Maxi products in Nigeria, Africa, thus winning several awards for its proactive market penetration.
