Manufacturing start-up

It is not difficult to buy a diaper or napkin machine if you have sufficient funds.

It is virtually impossible to buy the right machine with all of the features and components that will ensure your success in your particular market without considerable experience or expert assistance.

If you want to learn more about manufacturing diapers or napkins, go to the Feasibility Study page, I will ensure that your venture will be profitable before you invest. My extensive experience in the set up and development of successful companies will help you to achieve your aims. 


After analysing the products available on your local market, I will design the product and develop a full machine specification that will optimise your profitability. If you then decide to proceed with the project, I will assist in all facets of the set-up that you require; from operating procedures to material purchase.

Product and Process development 

Rising material costs combined with static sales prices have led to a lot of pressure on the manufacturer to reduce manufacturing cost. I am now offering a special package of services called Profit Plus that will take you from product testing through recommendations to full implementation.

Product analysis, testing and monitoring for purchasers

For Companies that purchase large quantities of disposable products, I offer a unique insight into the performance and component costs so that you will fully understand the reasons for your level of performance and the cost of improvement. I will also provide reports of product comparisons with comments allied to in-depth laboratory testing. See our Testing webpage.

Our laboratory tests have been designed and developed to indicate "real life" performance characteristics and can be allied to Test Panel reports that we can carry out for you.
