About Tissue.


The Paarl Media Group acquired Correll Tissue in June 2014 with unconditional approval received from the Competition Commission. The entity is Paarl Tissue (Pty) Ltd trading as Correll Tissue.

Correll Tissue is the primary tissue paper manufacturing plant of Novus Holdings. The acquisition allows Novus Holdings to expand its manufacturing operations by harnessing the potential of waste paper that is produced by the printing operations, to make tissue paper.

Correll Tissue has a de-inking and hot disperger unit installed at their facilities. The disperger system is used for the treatment of waste paper by finely dispersing waxes as well as ink particles to below the visibility level. This process produces a homogenous fiber stock for the production of paper.

The plant is located in Phoenix Industrial Park, nearby the Airport and the port city of Durban. The plant’s capacity is sufficient to convert all output produced by the tissue mill.
