SCA, a global hygiene products company based in Sweden, announced plans to invest about US$ 105 million to further strengthen tissue operations in one of the company’s Mexican facilities.
“The investment in Mexico will support SCA’s high-quality tissue offering under the Regio Brand,” said the firm also known as Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget via press release.
“The investment is aligned with the company’s strategy to streamline production and secure capacity for future growth in order to increase value creation in the tissue business area,” said the company.
SCA did not revealed further details on which plant the expansion will be allocated, but it’s likely to take place at its Sahagún tissue plant, a USD$ 200 million production site opened in February 2011 located less than 100 miles north of Mexico City.
The plant currently runs a paper machine with a capacity of 60,000 tons per year.
