Valmet and UPM have signed an extension of the existing maintenance operations agreement for UPM’s Platting mill in Germany for an additional three years. The value of the agreement will not be disclosed.

“Since the start-up of the Valmet-delivered paper machine PM1 in 2007, the maintenance team has been present at the site, providing outsourced maintenance operations services. Thanks to the extraordinary performance of the entire maintenance team during the years and the corona crisis, upcoming challenges have been mastered exceptionally well to this day. The maintenance team adapts quickly and professionally to changes and, thus, actively contributes to good results. It was a logical choice to extend the agreement and team collaboration with Valmet,” says Sebastian Loewenberg, general manager, UPM Plattling.

“The extension of the agreement is the best acknowledgment for the achievements reached together at the site over the years. We will continue to support the mill in reaching their goals by bringing efficiency, availability, and profitability to the best possible level during the coming years,” says Yrjö Ylitalo, director, EMEA Mill Maintenance Operations at the company.

In addition to the daily presence at the site, Valmet’s maintenance development and outsourcing services offering allows the customer access to its global network of technology and process experts 24 hours a day through Valmet Performance Centers and various industrial internet applications.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
