AFT is set to deliver a complete approach flow system to the Smurfit Kappa board mill in Cerro Gordo, Mexico. Representatives from the mill visited AFT’s Varkaus Service Center to tour the facility and inspect their equipment – including a new MaxFlow™ HB 2200 headbox screen and POMp™ degassers. “Everything we saw was great. We really liked the quality of manufacture, welding, and design”, remarked Alberto Monterrubio, Process Engineer (Projects & Engineering) for Smurfit Kappa Mexico.

 AFT is pleased to have been selected for this project and looks forward to bringing the new equipment online safely and efficiently for Smurfit Kappa, a leading global provider of sustainable packaging solutions.
