The paper industry is changing. McKinsey & Company reports, “Packaging is growing all over the world, along with tissue papers, and pulp for hygiene products. Although a relatively small market as yet, pulp for textile applications is growing. And a broad search for new applications and uses for wood and its components is taking place in numerous labs and development centers.”
To meet the demand of the changing market, mills need to produce more high quality product. They must find ways to produce faster while maintaining high quality and reducing downtime to keep up with demand for packaging grades, coated board, tissue, newsprint, office paper, and more.
