Feb. 20, 2017 - Valmet has expanded its roll maintenance operations with the latest technology equipment for rubber and composite roll covers in Karlstad, Sweden.

“This investment particularly strengthens Valmet's service capabilities close to its customers in Scandinavia, while also supporting Valmet's roll service offering to customers throughout Europe,” the company said in a press release.

The extended roll service center started operating at the end of 2016.

In addition to Sweden, Valmet has three other European roll service centers, providing both roll maintenance and roll covers. The other centers are located in Finland, France and the UK.

Anders Nilsson, Senior Workshop Manager at Valmet, added, “Now we also have the capacity in Scandinavia to handle even the biggest rolls. We invest in supporting our customers at the mills by bringing roll cover production closer to them. Our customers can get all the covers they need for all the positions they want from us.”

The increased roll cover capacity has also reduced delivery times for Valmet's European customers.

Valmet is a leading global developer and supplier of services and technologies for the pulp, paper and energy industries. To learn more, please visit:
