"We have awarded this prize to ANDRITZ based on our excellent relationship and ANDRITZ’s continuous support in mechanical pulping for almost 20 years. Our relationship has always been characterized by respect, responsibility, and professionalism, with a common approach of facing and resolving the challenges of our joint projects," said Mr. Victor I. Baranov, President of JSC Solikamskbumprom, expressing his recognition and thanks to ANDRITZ.
