Two global leaders, chemicals company Kemira and process technology, automation and services company Valmet, have signed a partnership agreement for the development of digitalized data-based applications and services for their customers in the pulp and paper industry.

"Kemira and Valmet are leading suppliers to the industry globally and both companies are also actively developing digital solutions. 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," says Antti Matula, Vice President of Product Lines and Business Development at Kemira.
