Despite recent downsizing, Paprican has undergone major reconfigurations of its Quebec and Vancouver offices in an effort to maximize its resources and energies. “The objective of the restructuring is to better position and strengthen Paprican’s role in the industry’s challenging environment. A leaner and more focused, creative and entrepreneurial Paprican will be better positioned to address the environmental and economic issues facing our industry,” said Frank Dottori, president and CEO of Tembec and chairman of Paprican’s board of directors.
The restructuring will focus on serving member companies in a more flexible way, reprioritizing core activities and expanding on research and service areas. The creation of new industry revenue sources and further developing partnerships with university researchers is also high on the priority list. “We are confident that we will be successful,” Dottori said.
Paprican president Joseph Wright is confident the changes will prove beneficial to all involved. “Paprican has preserved the essence of its strategic research program and maintains its critical core competencies absorbing the changes we have made. The new structure will allow Paprican to focus aggressively on what we deliver nationally and internationally,” he confirmed.
