ABTCP, the Brazilian Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, has chosen Metso to be the best company of the Automation category in 2010. The award was granted to Metso on October 5, 2010 at the ABTCP congress and exhibition in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The main criteria for the selection were the innovativeness of the automation supplier, the latest technology, the level of service and industry performance.

Metso has been on the Brazilian market since 1975. The country is currently a growing market for new investments. Metso has been able to win significant orders from the pulp and paper as well as the oil and gas industries. For example, Klabin, Celulose Nipo-Brasileira S.A. (Cenibra) and Suzano,Papel e Celulose S.A. are relying on Metso’s automation technologies.

During the years, Metso’s product range has been developing toward a comprehensive product offering, from process audits to life cycle performance agreements. Today, the main emphasis is on offering results that decrease raw materials, maintenance costs, chemical and energy consumption as well as support the environmental issues with high reliability. Metso’s automation based on a single platform approach with common hardware saves money for customers. All the different types of controls are within the same platform. This results in one user interface. No links are necessary between the systems.

ABTCP, the Brazilian Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, arranges a pulp and paper related congress and exhibition every year. The events organized are well established in the field; every year about 15,000 professionals visit the exhibition. This year saw the celebration of the 43rd event. More than 160 exhibitors were present.
