Faderco is an Algerian, family owned company and industry leading manufacturer of diapers, kitchen towel and other tissue products. It all started with cotton swabs and feminine care, which were the first activities launched in 1986. Faderco is today the national leader in feminine care with 14 products that ensure the daily comfort of almost 8,5 million women. In 2015 they produced their first jumbo roll with their new Advantage DCT machine from Valmet. The new tissue production line also included a Focus Rewinder. A few years later they saw a need to invest in a second rewinder to meet the demand from local converters with small reels. In October 2018 Faderco started to wind paper with a brand-new Focus Reelite T, Valmet’s new flexible rewinding solution.
Reliability and technology are important for Faderco, but even more important elements are service and committed people, that is what adds value.
Faderco works according to three main principles; Safety, Quality and Productivity. The expectations on the new rewinder were high and the results have been promising.
“We consider the Focus Rewinder to be very safe to operate, it was built with high quality standards and its consistency ensures high productivity levels. The equipment has met all our expectations and the Valmet people have, since the beginning, been very open and professional. We have developed a very good cooperation throughout the whole project. The product manager from Pescia was highly committed and competent. His and the team’s attitude and skills guaranteed a smooth start-up” Mr. Khalifa continues.
“Our customers expect us to provide very good tissue quality and that is also what we have seen from the first runs with the rewinder. We are very confident that the Focus Rewinders will help us reach our goals especially in a market of more than 42 million consumers.”
