ICN number:375

  • Date:13/06/2018
  • Product area:Hotel Services |


  • The supplier Essity has changed the pack size of its Paper Hand Towel, two ply product MRT213.
  • Essity Paper Hand Towels were previously supplied in packs of 250 sheets, but will now be in packs of 300 sheets, MRT393.
  • The increase in pack size is due to the supplier changing the sheet compression in production.


  • MRT393 will become available upon depletion of MRT213 stocks, which is estimated to be from 2 July 2018. At this time, customers will need to order product code MRT393.
  • Please note that code MRT393 will be unavailable to view on our online catalogue whilst MRT213 is in stock.
  • The new 300 sheet pack will fit in to the same dispensers as the current 250 sheet pack.
  • There is no overall price change per sheet. The pack price increase is reflective of the increase in sheets per pack from 250 to 300 sheets.
  • For further information, please refer to the product listing below.
