Arkhbum Tissue Group increased output of products by 32% in 2021

18 February 2022 ` 23:50  

In 2021 Arkhbum Tissue Group Ltd (IE Vorsino, Kaluga region, part of the Austrian Pulp Mill Holding Group of Companies) has significantly increased production and financial indicators compared to the corresponding period of the last year.

At the end of last year, the output of products increased by 32% YoY, the volume of AFHT production increased by 28%, which is associated with the commissioning and start-up of new production facilities – the Futura 3 line and the Omet napkin production line.

According to Arkhbum Tissue Group, last year the positive dynamics in the segment of paper towels for household use continued. Thus, the share of towels in the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) segment of the main manufacturers averaged about 20%. The share of these products at Arkhbum Tissue Group increased by about 50% and amounted to 22%. “The growth is associated with a change in lifestyle amid the pandemic,” the Company explained. “People began to spend more time at home and increasingly prefer paper towels rather than fabric ones.”

At the moment, a new phase of the AFHT production mill in the Kaluga region is under construction and it will be started up in early 2023. During 2022-2023 Pulp Mill Holding will invest about 7 billion rubles in the project. The capacity of the second line will be 70,000 tons of commercial products per year. Thus, the production output will double against the existing value and reach 140,000 tons per year. After the start up of the second phase of production in 2022, the Company is going to increase its share in the AFHT market up to 10%.
