Andritz, headquartered in Graz, Austria, has received an order to supply two baby diaper lines to the Fouani Group for its facilities in Lagos, Nigeria. The lines will produce a wide range of diaper products with absorbent cores made of pulp and SAP (superabsorbent polymer). Start-up is scheduled for 2022.
The two lines feature the most advanced forming technology for absorbent cores and SAP dosing. In addition, they are equipped with a web tensioning control system and quality check devices to ensure a high level of production quality. Andritz will provide services for installation and start-up of the machines.
Fouani’s target is to serve the market in Nigeria with state-of-the-art products produced locally. Established in 2001, the company is the sole distributor of LG, Hisense and Maxi products in Nigeria and has claimed several awards for its proactive market penetration. This is its second order from Andritz.
