Pesmel, a globally operating supplier of highly automated internal logistic, storing and packing systems, is to supply a roll handling and wrapping system to Domtar Corporation’s mill in Ashdown, Arkansas, United States.
The delivery is part of Domtar’s $160 million investment project, the aim of which is to convert the mill’s A64 paper machine into a high quality fluff pulp line. Fluff pulp is a material used in a variety of absorbent hygiene products.

The conversion is expected to come online by the third quarter of 2016. Once in full operation, the converted machine will have an annual production capacity of up to 516,000 metric tons.
