The Voith Group has successfully completed its previously announced acquisition of Toscotec, an Italy-based manufacturer of tissue paper and paperboard equipment.

Andreas Endters, President and CEO of Voith Paper, says: “Toscotec’s acquisition matches Voith’s targets of strategic growth in a perfect way. Toscotec’s range of products and services effectively supports our portfolio and further strengthens our position as a full-line supplier in important areas of the paper industry.”

Toscotec will continue to offer its portfolio as established. The company will remain entrepreneurial in nature and will operate under the established Toscotec brand. In the area of tissue, Toscotec will carry out the business with new lines and major rebuilds for the whole Voith Group in the future. Voith Paper will continue to serve its delivered tissue machines. All other business activities will remain unaffected, and Voith and Toscotec customers will be able to purchase via their existing sales channels as usual.

Alessandro Mennucci, CEO of Toscotec, says: “This acquisition is a landmark in the history of our company. By joining forces with Voith, we plan to pursue new ambitious goals. We will build on our expertise and strong reference base in the paper industry and will be able to offer added value to our customers.”
