Practical Training

WHY TO CHOOCE PILOTING SERVICES?

Our customers have said, that they love to have a site where they can freely test, succeed or fail in safe enviroment without endangering their own machines. And with leadtime from 1 to 6 months, we can start piloting rather quickly!

Piloting services has helped them to move forward with their development, so that they can implement new procesess. materials, equipment to their own machines. 

Our key is also to be flexible partner and we like to look alternative ways how we can proceed with the piloting, for an example if we don't have that particular machine, we try to look for it etc!

 

Also you can bring your own pulp, white water, equipment etc. so that we get the most realistic enviroment to match your own production.

Safe to fail enviroment, low day-cost, experienced and flexible team and South-Karelian hospitality. It does not get any better from this!
