Toscotec pursues its investment strategy in order to enhance its strength in the tissue and paper industry. Inspired by its trust in innovation and a custom-oriented spirit, the company – pioneer and world leader in the Steel Yankee Dryer market – opens the new facility dedicated to the complete production cycle of TT SYDs.
The architectural heart of the facility is the central hall that houses all the stages of the production line: 180m long, 40m wide overall and up to 18m high. From metalworking and precision mechanical processing to thermal treatment in a 10m x 10m oven, all the tests and stamps are made on site according to European (PED), American (ASME), Chinese (CSEI) and Japanese (JIS) regulations. The new center also houses technical and production offices, as well as a conference room and lounge for customers.
The facility is located in Massa, 50 km from Lucca, a location chosen for its easy seaport access for quick overseas shipments.
The new center marks a breakthrough in Steel Yankee Dryer manufacturing and has a clear aim: to increase efficiency and ensure the best product worldwide, allowing Toscotec to further enhance its leadership role in technological innovation.
