Sofidel Invests $185 Million To Expand Its Circleville, OH, Plant

To meet growing demand in the U.S. market, the Sofidel tissue paper group has announced the strengthening of its production capacity with a new investment of $185 million at its integrated plant in Circleville, OH. The project involves the construction of a new building that will house a new Valmet DCT 200 paper mill machine. The machine’s operation is expected to start in Q3 2025, with a production capacity of 70,000 metric tons per year.

The Circleville plant, which is already home to two Valmet Advantage NTT paper mill machines, will reach a total production capacity of over 200,000 metric tons per year (+50%) and become Sofidel’s most important production site globally, according to a press release.

“Last year, we celebrated our first 10 years in the U.S. market: 10 years of development and growth. Thanks in part to the close-knit and capable U.S. team and our excellent relationships with institutions, from the state of Ohio to the local communities that have always supported us, we open our second decade of operations in the United States with this new investment in the Circleville plant. Today, Sofidel America has production sites in six states and this operation will enable us to further meet the growing demand from our customers and continue to fuel our growth in this country,” Sofidel CEO Luigi Lazzareschi said.

The release added: “The Ohio plant was Sofidel’s first greenfield investment in the United States. To date, it is the Group’s most modern and sustainable plant. Located on a 280-acre site, the plant sits in an area rich in water, gas, and electricity resources, and close to a strategic logistics hub for distribution operators, with intermodal transport systems and major urban centers within a few hundred miles.”
