Reflecting on 2023 brings two overarching themes into focus: innovation and change. Both are pivotal in driving success, and each speak to an exciting future.
The MIAC 2023 Conference provided an opportunity for tissue industry professionals to experience several key solutions for improving production efficiencies, competitive advantage, and outcomes:
After the acquisition of the Körber Business Area Tissue by Valmet, we now operate as Tissue Converting Business Unit within the Valmet Group.
We integrates advanced tissue converting process technologies and related services into what is now the widest product portfolio in the market. Capabilities cover the entire tissue value chain from fiber to finished tissue products —as well as offering the broadest tissue customer coverage globally.
The combination forms a strong basis to create new business opportunities, as Pasi Laine, President and CEO of Valmet, explains:
“We are happy to welcome Körber Business Area Tissue — the market leader in tissue converting — and close to 1,200 new dedicated colleagues to Valmet. The acquisition is a good fit and complements Valmet’s tissue making offering with strong expertise and complete solutions from tissue converting to packaging. By entering the tissue converting business through this acquisition, we take another step forward in strengthening capabilities to serve our global customers even better.”

On 31 January - 2 February, 2024, the Miami Beach Convention Center is hosting Tissue World Miami 2024 — one of the world’s largest showcases of the latest technology and advancements in the North American Tissue Industry.
Valmet will be there, and we look forward to seeing you at Booths D20 for Tissue Converting and F50 for Tissue Lines. The event’s theme, “Shaping the Future of Tissue, Together” is the perfect setting for Matthew Kowalski, Valmet Account Executive, to present Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by leveraging simplicity, modularity and automation.
This educational session covers innovative ways for tissue manufacturers to maximize Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and TCO with disruptive solutions such as Perini MyGo, MTC MyWize, Sam operational solutions, and more — great information for a strategic start to the new year.
