Valmet at C&S in China

As a leading household paper company in China, C&S specializes in producing household paper products. Eleven Valmet IntelliTissue household paper machine units have been successfully installed in C&S’s Yunfu, Tangshan and Xiaogan production mills since 2017. The smooth start-up of Valmet PM 5 at C&S’s Xiaogan mill in March 2021 marked a further milestone in the companies’ close cooperation. 



Strong focus on quality and cost efficiency  

With its particular emphasis on the quality of paper products, C&S is quite strict about the quality of paper machines. Lin Tiande, C&S’s Technology Center General Manager, speaks very highly of Valmet tissue machines and the quality of the paper products. In his own words, “C&S is an innovation-oriented company. In terms of product management, we always strive to pursue industry-leading, first-class innovative technology.”   

Since the start-up, the new Valmet IntelliTissue machine has delivered stable product quality and received good feedback from end customers.

Mr. Lin adds that the decision on PM 5 was made based mainly on the growing market demand, and the start-up date was planned in accordance with the mill’s needs. A key criterion for selecting Valmet as a supplier was the paper machine’s cost-effectiveness and the end-product quality.
