Valmet and a customer in the Scandinavian region continue their successful collaboration by signing an extension of the Chip Quality Agreement. The agreement supports the customer in maintaining and further improving chip quality and the performance and lifetime of the chipping equipment at two of its sites.
The agreement was included in Valmet’s orders received of the third quarter 2022. It is a two-year agreement and effective immediately. The value of the agreement will not be disclosed.

Our collaboration has been successful as we have been able to support the customer with services that improve the chip quality and the availability of their equipment. We are looking forward to further improvements and deepening the good relationship”, says Lennart Montonen, Sales Manager, Pulp Solutions, EMEA, Valmet.
