Scope of Activity

Toscotec is divided in two internal divisions to provide dedicated service to our customers by highly specialized personnel:

Tissue Division
This division is dedicated to the development, design and engineering of tissue plants and machinery. With broad experience in the field focused mainly on the supply of "turn-key" projects, the Tissue Division team is committed to the optimization of design and process for our customers.
This team is also involved both in R&D activities and field operations and brings significant added value both to our company and to our customers.
Paper & Board Division
The Paper & Board Division comprises a young yet experienced team. Thanks to its constant dedication to the design of innovative solutions, it has brought to the market products such as the TT X-Press and the TT- Short Former.
This team is capable of handling "turn-key" projects with particular focus on the rebuilding and modernization of existing paper machines.

The following teams exist to support the two internal divisions:

Stock Preparation

Business Philosophy

In its 60 and more years of activity Toscotec's purpose has been to perfectly combine product reliability and technical innovation, quality of components and high performance of the whole plant. These, together with the strong partnership with its customers, aiming to find innovative solutions to satisfy their requirements, are the roots of Toscotec's success.

Supplying standard equipment has never been Toscotec's approach to the market. We always incorporate technical innovations in our components and equipment  which are designed to ease the path towards reaching targeted performance levels.

With its constant demand for high quality finished products combined with plants capable of higher operating speed, the market has found in Toscotec a reliable and expert supplier.

In addition to "turn-key" supplies and brand new tissue machines, Toscotec has also become a strategic player in the development of solutions to improve the performance and optimize operating costs of existing plants through upgrades and rebuilds of machine sections and complete plants.

In these areas the latest and best technologies feature products such as: multilayered headboxes, consistency profiling on the headbox, steel yankee dryers, jumbo presses, and reels with linear secondary arms. All are designed according to the latest Best Available Technology and are focused on energy and fibre savings. 3D modelling is an important tool adopted by Toscotec both in mechanical and plant engineering design.
