Westford, Massachusetts, USA, 05 May 2011 -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kadant (NYSE:KAI) today announced that its Kadant Lamort SAS subsidiary has received an order for a stock-preparation system valued at approximately USD 6 million from a specialty packaging and paper producer based in the United Kingdom. The system will be used primarily to recycle coated board and is designed to process a variety of pre- and post-consumer waste including poly-coated board and mixed office grades.

"We were pleased to have been selected for this project which is part of a major rebuild at the mill," said Jonathan W. Painter, president and chief executive officer of Kadant. "After the mill concluded extensive trials at several locations around the globe, including at our pilot plant in Vitry, France, we were awarded the contract based on our equipment's ability to produce the highest quality pulp to be used in the production of multiply boxboard for packaging specialty goods. Our system layout and compact footprint were also key factors in the mill's selection of Kadant as the preferred supplier."
