Customer case:

ITC Limited PM1 coated board making line in India

Apr 16, 2019

“The main driver for this investment was the increasing demand for packaging board in India mainly due to increased e-shopping. Coated board has also an important role in replacing plastics. We needed a trustworthy equipment supplier and high technology which can convert raw material to a high-quality board in a cost-efficient way", says Sanjay Singh, Chief Executive Officer of ITC Paperboards and Specialty Papers Division.

Excellent-quality board means high printing properties, good functional properties like high bulk, smoothess and stiffness. In addition, the cost dimension is essential in terms of lightweighting and energy efficient processes. Valmet has been very committed to this project from engineering the solution to qualified end product quality."
