Renata Becse and Franz Rappl have been appointed, respectively, process coordinator and administrator, and blending and DIET manager at Leaf NewCo.
Earlier this year, Leaf NewCo officially opened a factory in Hungary offering expanded tobacco or the use of expanded tobacco processing capacity to small- and medium-sized tobacco products manufacturers unable to justify the cost of installing their own expansion plants.
The new plant is being operated as a joint venture between the Continental Tobacco Group, which will use some of the plant’s capacity to enhance its tobacco products, and the global tobacco service provider and leaf merchant NewCo, which will commercialize most of the capacity through its recently formed Dutch company, NewCo Leaf Europe BV.
The plant was installed by Airco DIET within Continental’s premises at Sátoraljaújhely, a small town near Hungary’s border with Slovakia.
