Defining the future of sustainability in the tissue industry

Tissue manufacturers and converters focused on holistically improving product and production sustainability need solutions that help meet their interconnected environmental, profitability, and efficiency goals.

Körber’s continuous, customer-focused tissue technologies are helping lead the industry toward a more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable future with:

  • Reliance on more sustainable and renewable paper raw materials and pulp sources, such as managed forests, bamboo, and other fiber alternatives
  • Increasing recycled content of tissue and packaging materials
  • Packaging innovations including compostable paper and bioplastic alternatives
  • Clean manufacturing processes that protect water supplies and reduce CO2 emissions
  • Solid rolls and the elimination of adhesives
  • Smart, efficient equipment and machines that reduce energy consumption

Quick Delivery makes fast work of supply chain management

The year brought some easing of supply chain disruption impact, but there is still a long path to full restoration of supply chain efficiency in the tissue industry. However, demand and production must continue, which can create dilemmas for tissue manufacturers and converters.

In response, Körber Tissue created a broad portfolio of converting, packaging, and folded equipment and Technical Improvement Programs (TIPs) that are readily available through quick delivery. The solutions are practical for supply chain management issues and also provide the added benefits of faster time to market, timely response to business opportunities, and accelerated return on investment.
