Metso to supply Procter & Gamble

Metso Paper will supply a complete tissue making line to Procter & Gamble plant in Missouri, the USA. The new machine is scheduled to start up in 2004. The value of the order is not disclosed. The delivery will be a part of the expansion of Procter & Gamble’s operations in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The start up of the new machine will increase the plant’s annual production capacity of super soft tissue and towel products by 80,000 tons. These products are
marketed under Bounty and Charmin brands. The new Cape Girardeau tissue making line will be the eight tissue machine of the same category Metso Paper has supplied to Procter &
Gamble in the United States. In the past three years, Metso Paper has delivered two tissue machines to Cape Girardeau and two to Procter & Gamble’s mill in Meehoopany, Pennsylvania.
