MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Canadian towel and tissue market leader Kruger Products L.P. announces the launch of a new embossed pattern on all its roll and multifold towel brands; Embassy® Supreme, Embassy®, White Swan® and Esteem®. The new embossing both enhances the look and feel of the towels and delivers superior absorption and strength - enabling hands to be dried more thoroughly, thereby reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
"Our new embossed towels are softer, more absorbent and exceptionally strong," says Eric Bisson, corporate vice president Away From Home Business, Kruger Products L.P. "The unique cross-wave design delivers a fresh new look and a level of strength and absorption that practically does the job for you. It's the depth of the embossing and the amount of emboss per square centimeter that make these towels so absorbent, so your average towel usage will decrease. Now all Kruger Products' roll towel brands can be used in our mechanical touchless towel dispensers, which give our customers a wider range of product solutions."
In line with Kruger Products' Sustainability 2015 initiative, the new embossed roll and multifold towels are EcoLogoM-certified (made with 100% recycled fibre and over 88% post-consumer content) and/or Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)-certified by Rainforest Alliance. Kruger Products is proud to be the first Canadian tissue manufacturer to obtain FSC® certification.
Previewed last October in Las Vegas at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN® (International Sanitary Supply Association) convention for purchasers of hygiene/cleaning products and equipment, Kruger Products' new embossed towels were well received by attendees from across North America.
"As the market leader, our customers expect us to be the company to introduce exciting new products," says Bisson. "This latest innovation is all about performance and demonstrates Kruger Products' commitment to deliver the best-performing, quality products."
Product lines will be phased in across Canada and the United States beginning in January 2012. For more information on the new embossed towels and for a complete list of Kruger Products' EcologoM and FSC® certified products, visit krugerproducts.com/afh.
