Oct. 10, 2017 - Chemicals company Kemira and process technology, automation and services company Valmet have signed a partnership agreement to develop digitalized data-based applications and services for the pulp and paper industry.

With a workforce of around 4,800 employees, Kemira is a global chemicals company serving customers in water intensive industries.

Valmet is a developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries with its global headquarters in Espoo, Finland.

“Kemira and Valmet are leading suppliers to the industry globally and both companies are also actively developing digital solutions,” said Antti Matula, vice-president of Product Lines and Business Development at Kemira. “Ultimately, the goal is to improve the speed, quality, reliability, predictability and performance of our customers’ business. With these synergies, it makes great sense to join forces to create value and reshape business collaboration models.”

“Through this cooperation and the companies’ complementary know-how, customers’ production process data can be integrated and optimized for the customers’ benefit. This provides superior performance for the customers instead of each actor operating independently,” added Jari Almi, director of Industrial Internet at Valmet.
