The prism of the order book is an excellent indicator and carefully scrutinized; it provides the ability to forecast the annual evolution of the company activity. In less than 3 months, ALLIMAND Group has almost filled its annual order book by registering orders for two new specialty paper machines in Europe and China.

Sensitive to the industrial design of its customer’s machines, the ALLIMAND Group has customized these two paper machines. Intended for the production of high added value papers, they showcase a very innovative design for these kinds of applications. Deliveries will run from the end of 2018 to the middle of 2019.

Well positioned in the paper machine rebuild market, the ALLIMAND Group continues its strategy of deployment in Europe and Asia. In France, the group has sold, among other things, two of its S4 Headboxes with profile control by dilution for packaging papers and the modification of a nonwovens machine. In Spain, it will deliver at the end of the second quarter a S4 Headbox with profile control by dilution and a Naos shoe press. Finally, in Asia (China) the Group has signed a contract for stock preparation equipment (refiners) and an Isa Shaking Unit in Indonesia.
