Sofidel’s HyTech Seas Dispensers Receive Innovation Award for Sustainable Hygiene

Sofidel built a tissue paper manufacturing plant on 280 acres in Circleville, Ohio. The site is one mile long, and the building contains more than 1.4 million square feet. The integrated plant incorporates a paper mill, a converting plant for producing the finished product and a state-of-the-art warehousing facility. Once at full capacity, the facility will employ 700 people.

Sofidel, a leading global provider of paper for hygienic and domestic use, has been named a winner in the 2024 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group (BIG). The award recognizes Sofidel’s innovative Papernet powered by HyTech Seas dispensers, designed to improve restroom hygiene while simultaneously promoting sustainability.

“We’re honored to be recognized by the Business Intelligence Group for our HyTech Seas dispensers,” said Fabio Vitali, Vice President of Marketing, Sofidel America. “Sustainability is a key priority for Sofidel, and these dispensers represent a significant step forward in our commitment to providing eco-friendly hygiene solutions.”

Fighting Ocean Plastic Pollution:

Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of the BIG, stated, “Innovation is driving our society, and we are thrilled to be honoring Sofidel as they are leading by example and improving the lives of so many.” This award recognizes Sofidel’s commitment to sustainable innovation and its positive impact on the environment.
