The two lines will be installed at their unit, JK Paper Mills in Jaykaypur, Rayagada, Orissa, and are scheduled to begin operation in autumn 2012.

Both 8-pocket lines will provide the highest efficient production and quality of A4 copy papers. Each line will include six unwind stands with automatic roll change and generator brakes, dual slitter from E.C.H. Will as well as a high-speed packaging line from Pemco.
