Andritz has received an order from Procter & Gamble (P&G) to supply a PrimeLineTAD (Through-Air Dried) tissue machine for its Family Care plant in Box Elder, Utah, US. The start-up is scheduled for 2024. The new PrimeLineTAD machine will be supplied with state-of-the-art energy efficient process equipment to meet P&G’s demanding sustainability targets.

Andritz and Procter & Gamble have been strong business partners for many years. In 2007, Andritz supplied and started up a TAD tissue/towel machine at Procter and Gamble’s Green Bay, Wisconsin, US site that fully met P&G’s expectations. This was followed by another TAD tissue/towel machine at Procter and Gamble’s Box Elder facility, which started up successfully in 2011, according to a press release by Andritz.

Procter and Gamble, one of the largest manufacturers of premium consumer bath tissues and paper towels in North America, produces the brands of Charmin, Puffs, and Bounty.
