Toscotec continues expansion at Lucca headquarters in Italy

Toscotec continues the expansion of its covered production area with the inauguration of a new building – Workshop 9 – at its headquarters in Lucca, Italy.

The new workshop is primarily dedicated to equipment loading and logistic operations, and it frees up space for the increasing manufacturing and pre-assembly activities at the facility. This addition testifies to Toscotec’s growth as a prominent supplier of advanced, energy efficient technology for the tissue and paper industry and global leader of turnkey tissue projects.

Alessandro Mennucci, CEO of Toscotec, says, “In our vision, sustained growth and tangible improvements in carbon reduction go hand in hand. While pursuing technological innovation for the decarbonisation of the paper making industry, Toscotec also strives to enhance its environmental performance and achieve maximum efficiency at its production sites.”

Toscotec’s production base in Lucca covers an area of more than 65,000 square meters which is devised for maximum manufacturing efficiency. Inspired by lean production, the site’s new layout has been designed to serve a fully integrated and compact logistic flow. Driven by a strong commitment to constantly improving the sustainability of its operations, Toscotec has streamlined material handling processes and has accomplished a significant reduction of energy consumptions and carbon footprint.
