Andritz to acquire Paperchine, USA

02/06/2017 - 10:18 AM

International technology Group Andritz has signed a contract for acquisition of Paperchine, Inc., owned by AstenJohnson Holdings Ltd., headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina. The purchase is subject to approval by the antitrust authorities and is expected to be closed by the end of June 2017.

Paperchine is a global supplier of highly engineered equipment and services to the paper industry’s leading manufacturers. For Andritz, the acquisition of Paperchine strengthens its presence in North America and adds new products, such as the horizontal GapFormer, SigmaPro headbox, dewatering elements (former Johnson Foils), moisturizer (former VIB), and related service to its offerings for international clients.

 “We are very excited about this complementary acquisition that extends the Andritz product range for paper and board machines,” says Michael Pichler, SVP Andritz Global Pulp Drying and Paper Division Manager.

AstenJohnson CEO, Kevin Frank, comments: “The sale of Paperchine fits with our strategy to focus on growth in technical textiles, including paper machine clothing, advanced fabric, and nonwovens. Our friends and associates at Paperchine have successfully positioned the company as a leading global brand. They will have the opportunity to continue to grow with the support of Andritz, while building on the strong foundation they have established as a part of the AstenJohnson family.”
