First Quality Tissue to Build New Tissue Mill in Anderson, SC
May 14, 2010 - First Quality Tissue said that it has selected Anderson, South Carolina as the site for a new tissue/towel mill.
The company, in July 2009, announced plans to build an additional tissue/towel manufacturing facility with a location to be announced at a later date.
The initial plans for the Anderson County facility call for two state-of-the-art Thru-Air-Dried (TAD) machines being installed consecutively, which, when operational, would double First Quality’s current 150,000 tpy capacity.
The company is anticipating having the first machine operational in the third quater of 2011 and the second machine on-line by Q3, 2012.
