Pulp & paper
Partnering to produce results.
Our clients in the pulp and paper industry look to Jacobs as a collaborative partner. We consult with them to determine the best solution to keep them competitive in today’s global market. As a result, we have alliances with several of the world’s largest pulp and paper producers.
In these long-standing relationships, Jacobs uses its vast product line experience from coated, uncoated and fine papers to linerboard, newsprint and specialty grades along with our pulp and paper process and mill operation knowledge to provide differentiated value for our clients.
Jacobs projects in the past five years alone total more than $2.5 billion and include in excess of 30 new facilities and the modernization of hundreds more. Our range of services cover pulping, papermaking, material handling & woodyard, bleaching, deinking and recycled fiber, chemical recovery, environmental services, logistics, and process controls.
Leveraging our long-term relationships and multi-office execution strategy, Jacobs partners with the world’s largest tissue and towel producers. We look at the big picture, guiding clients with the knowledge they need to make cost efficient decisions; build new, modern tissue machines or rebuild aging assets to maintain cost and quality competitiveness.
Jacobs' professional staff of engineers, designers, and construction managers incorporates the latest stock preparation, conventional and structured tissue machine, and converting technology to come up with solutions that increase production capacities, improve quality, diminish waste, and reduce power consumption.
With multiple tissue machine projects, including greenfield, brownfield, rebuilds and retrofits, our goal is to meet or exceed performance curve expectations so our clients continue to turn to us as their advisor and partner in the industry.
With an expanding focus on serving global customers and a quickly changing business climate, Jacobs partners with some of the largest consumer products companies to help them reach their user base.
Our professionals assist with a variety of services in the high speed manufacturing environment including plant expansions, modifications to existing production lines, production optimization, custom machine design and programming, operational troubleshooting, and vertical start-ups. Jacobs' multi-industry perspective allows us to provide creative, high-value solutions that meet our clients’ business objectives.
Jacobs is one of few in the industry capable of custom machine design, allowing our clients to retain the owner of the intellectual property and possession of the design. As one client states "Jacobs machine design capability reduces our risk from vendors selling our advancements in the market to our competitors.”
