Futura has won several orders for complete high performance tissue converting lines following the Andromeda Showcase held during iT’s Tissue in Lucca this June.
The Andromeda concept represents a complete new converting solution which redraws the boundaries for tissue roll products converting.
It was demonstrated for the first time in its complete form in FuturaLab during iT’s Tissue, witnessed by hundreds of tissue professionals over the five days of the event.
Head of Technology and Futura Lab Director Giovacchino Giurlani said: “In all the key areas - process continuity, overall equipment effectiveness, safety, productivity, layout,
manpower reduction and finished product quality - we could demonstrate that Andromeda has set a new benchmark.”
“Seeing is believing,” added Head of Sales and VP International Operations Piero Ceccon, “because as a direct result we are very pleased to announce that several new lines based on the Andromeda concept will be delivered in the coming 12 months.”
Futura cannot yet confirm where all the new lines will be located, although it can be revealed that one will be in Europe, at least two in North America and a number of further lines in undisclosed locations.
Futura Press Release — Lucca, 8 October 2015
The world is full of companies that believe they have reached the top and just sit down, and literally within months, without even knowing what happened to them, they collapse. Primarily because the market is like a bicycle race. Following is always easier than leading. And then because, when you lose momentum, it's not so easy to get it back. It's fact that squatters are not the best runners.
