    Morcon Tissue has invested in a new S-70 winder from the world-renowned manufacturer, United Converting. This state of the art piece of equipment will allow Morcon to better service its customers, introduce new products and significantly increase their capacity of wound products. Morcon and UC are very excited to build upon their strategic partnership that began in 2016.
     
    Joe Raccuia, President and Owner of Morcon Tissue stated, “United Converting has truly earned our business the good old-fashioned way. Luca Catoni’s level of professionalism and follow through have been best-in-class.  Their equipment has evolved dramatically under Giuseppe Lupi’s visionary leadership and we are blessed to have such a fantastic, innovative partner in UC.”
     
    Morcon’s VP of Sales Laura Morris is also excited to share the news with customers revealing that, “Our new S70 winder will add 1 million cases of new capacity to our towel and tissue offering. Our goal is to be the #1 converting company for the Away-From-Home tissue market, in the eyes of our customers. The new -70 winder will help make our goal a reality.”
     
    United Converting Srl President, Giuseppe Lupi, said, “We are delighted to support the growth of Morcon with the supply of our S-70 winder line. Under Joe Raccuia’s entrepreneurial leadership, Morcon has grown steadily and has been both a great customer and partner for several years.”  
     
    Luca Catoni, United Converting Sales Manager, added, “We feel extremely privileged to support Morcon’s highly qualified and enthusiastic team of professionals in the achievement of their goals.  They are becoming a well-known force in the U.S tissue market. The high-tech design of the S-70 stop-start winder enables unsurpassed production output when paired with our T-35S high-density log saw. This delivery is a milestone for UC as it is our 15th winder line in the U.S.”
