Spain: Papel Aralar S.A. is choosing Voith as service partner
At Papel Aralar S.A. yearly 90,000 t of uncoated and coated special papers are produced on three paper machines. In order to reach maintenance best practice level Voith will redesign and expand the existing maintenance management system integrating the preventive and predictive maintenance processes.
