PrimeLine TIAC - Tissue Innovation and Application Center

The world's most modern pilot plant for tissue

PrimeLineTIAC – Tissue Innovation and Application Center

A vision comes true

Imagine a world in which everybody uses tissue! This does not seem unrealistic considering that tissue, unlike other paper grades, promises continuous growth of approx. 3.5% for the next few years.

The increasing demand will be met by existing tissue producers and their future investments, as well as by newcomers. Enhancements in production and end product quality will be a decisive success factor if these companies are to become or remain successful.

ANDRITZ has reacted to these future challenges and built the world’s most modern Tissue Innovation and Application Center so that customers, suppliers, and R&D institutes can test and develop tissue solutions.
