Lecta substitutes existing P1 coating machine for thermal paper with a new line to be installed in its Leitza plant at the beginning of 2018, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new coating machine for thermal paper will be installed in the Leitza plant, Spain, thereby replacing the old P1 coater. This is part of Lecta's Strategic Plan aimed at diversifying business and reinforcing its specialty papers and reducing the production capacity of coated woodfree paper.
More than Euro 20 million will be invested in new thermal facilities which include a Voith coating machine and follows on from the complete modernization of the coating preparation kitchen.
Lecta is a leading European manufacturer and distributor of specialty paper for labels and flexible packaging, coated and non-coated paper for publishing and commercial printing, and other high value-added print media.
