OMET is pleased to announce the accomplishment of the 750 installations of tissue converting machines globally since its foundation in 1963. The achievement of the 750th installation of a tissue converting machine comes in a period of strong growth of the OMET Group that has steadily increased its turnover by a steady 10% each year since 2009 and is targeting 90 million Euro in 2015.
The installed base of OMET tissue converting machines spreads over the five continents as evidence of the company’s leading position as a provider of modular machines for the production of napkins, towels and place mats.
In over fifty years of presence in the tissue industry, OMET has reached ambitious goals, supported by people and values that still represent the main motor of the company. The achievement of the 750 installations coincides, in fact, with the presentation of the FV.4 line (vacuum folding machine for napkins with 4 lanes), the renewed AS Line for the production of towels, the ruthless project of digitalization of all the company’s products to ease up the process flow and increase the overall safety, and the introduction of new modular units, among whose Chameleon, the innovative modular print head units for the digital direct printing of variable data on napkins.
The worldwide expansion and the continuous innovation that characterize the company’s attitude towards the market are obvious signs of a business strength that always seeks new challenges.
