Buyers of eco-friendly jumbo tissue rolls can meet UTM at the industry's premier exhibition in Nice the end of March.

Unipak Tissue Mill (UTM) will exhibit at Tissue World in Nice, France from 26-29 March 2007 (Stand # 1E185). The Lebanon-based manufacturer will highlight its variety of prime partly-to-fully recycled jumbo tissue grades at the show.

"Recycling paper is no longer a choice; it's a necessity," exclaims George Mourad, General Manager. "When customers consume recycled tissue, we make a noticeable contribution to the environment, where every gesture to safeguard helps."

Since 2000, the ISO-9001 certified tissue mill has invested in product development, what Mourad calls "a cornerstone of our success", to pass on tangible benefits to its customers and end users.

Benefits of Recycled Tissue

UTM sources fiber from recovered office or copy paper, as well as printer trimmings. Optimizing this valuable raw material creates demand for paper sent to recycling, reduces landfills and ultimately decreases costs of recycling.

UTM sources recycled paper at lower prices than its virgin equivalent. For the Away-From-Home (AFH) market, in particular, converters using UTM jumbo rolls then pass on cost savings to the end customer.

Recycled Jumbo Tissue Rolls

UTM will highlight recycled jumbo rolls during Tissue World 2007. Recycled rolls are converted into such institutional and household products as hand towels, kitchen towels, toilet tissue, facial tissue, and table napkins. Jumbo tissue roll widths range from 19 to 2640 mm, and roll outer diameter from 700 to 1500 mm.

Expansion to Egypt in 2008

UTM will also announce the launch of a sister tissue mill, Interstate Paper Industries SAE, in Sadat City, Egypt. The new tissue mill is expected to begin production in mid-2008 with an annual capacity of 50,000 MT/year.

Unipak Tissue Mill is ISO-9001 certified by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Ltd.
