In these challenging times, essential businesses are implementing unprecedent health and safety measures to protect customers, employees and their families.

Paper mills continue to focus on increasing uptime and operating speed. This is to increase profits and meet their customer demands. Increased uptime also helps offset the need for skilled maintenance personnel as baby boomers retire and budgets shrink.

This means that Holmen mills are actively taking steps towards Industry 4.0.
