Pulp, Paper and Forest Products
Asset Reliability and Management Solutions for Pulp, Paper and Forestry Products

Faced with an unpredictable and fluctuating raw materials supply, wild oscillations in pricing and increasing customer expectations, pulp, paper and forest products operations often operate on razor-thin margins. Shareholder and stakeholder pressure for profit often leads them to operate with decades-old equipment that is near―or past―its effective lifecycle. Heavily process-driven and highly production centric, processing facilities can tolerate little, if any, downtime―scheduled or unscheduled. Yet, their aging equipment effectively guarantees some must occur.

The challenge for these operations is to increase the longevity and reliability of equipment, thereby increasing uptime and extending lifecycles. For these customers, such solutions as reliability-focused maintenance and predictive maintenance can literally determine whether or not the operation is profitable. Performance Consulting Associates (PCA) has many long-term clients for which our improvements have tipped the scales in their favor.
