Valmet Tissue Customer Day was held on 19 October 2022 to build collaboration and forge stronger cooperation between the technology company and Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas. The event on Saturday was hosted in Perawang mill in Riau, Sumatra island.
The seminar held in one of the largest pulp mills in Indonesia drew a high amount of interest and attention with dozens of attendees from the company’s mills and offices around Sumatra, including Jambi and Ogan Komering Ilir areas, as well as guests from mills in Java.
Hundreds of ideas were shared in the event, where participants discussed tissue solutions and exchanged stories from their individual expertise. Other topics on the table included market and customer demands, market requirements, as well as energy and sustainability.
The group event successfully strengthened contacts and network between employees and experts across different APP offices and those attending from Valmet, the Finland-based developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries. Seminar attendees from both parties took away valuable knowledge through the one-of-a-kind learning program and received the latest information on market trends.
This cross-collaboration approach was beneficial for specialists and leaders at Valmet and APP. The diverse background of participants, from junior designers to senior function heads, from newcomers to experienced engineers, added value to the discussions and enriched the conversations in the sidelines of the seminar.
