Ukrainian cement bag producer, Pamibro, has recently installed a second paper bag line from German equipment suppler, Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H). The system comprises an AM 8125 tuber, an AD 8320 bottomer, two TRANSYSTEMS automated material flow systems, and an ARCOMAT 3 palletiser.

“With this investment, Pamibro can keep up with the ever-rising demand for high-quality paper bags,” said Pamibro’s owner, Prof. Ilya Shutak. “It is also helping us to meet Ukraine’s tightening environmental protection regulations.”

Pamibro’s original W&H paper bag was installed just over a decade ago in 2007. It continues to operate, helping Palibro supply markets well beyond Ukraine’s borders, including Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Moldova, the Baltics, and the Czech Republic. Italy, Poland and other EU nations are also growing markets for the Broshniv-based company.

“Since spring 2017, we have had the two W&H machines running alongside each other in one impressive production hall,” added Prof. Shutak. “We are producing high-quality paper bags almost around the clock.”
