"In the course of my 30 year career in Specialty Paper, I have had the opportunity to use Pulp and Paper Services on a number of occasions.

Pulp and Paper Services has offered a number of insightful services that have been beneficial in many different areas. The ability to use Pulp and Paper Services for both quantitative and qualitative analysis has enabled problem solving in a much more accurate and timely way. I have always been impressed with the variety of testing available. Their services have been a great help over the years and on many projects in Process and Product design, in problem solving and in performance analysis.

In my mind, what sets Pulp and Paper Services apart from other labs is their ability to combine a vast background in pulp and paper processes and manufacture with an impressive battery of tests and testing protocols. Pulp and Paper Services has always taken he time at the beginnings of projects to understand the goal of the testing and to offer thoughtful suggestions and alternatives. Another great strength has been the ability to interpret results as they relate to specific problem solving challenges.

Pulp and Paper Services has a broad knowledge base of the raw materials and use in the manufacture of Paper. Fiber analysis and interpretation has always been a great strength. We have used their services on many occasions to relate paper performance to the type of fiber and fiber preparation properties. 

I have always and consistently found Phil Sirois to be a great resource to help design the best testing for solving particular problems. He has great insight in all facets of the Pulp and Paper Industry. His testing is done in a timely and thorough way. His interpretation of results is done in a way that is very understandable and thoughtful. I have enjoyed working with him and always feel he has been part of the team in our work together.

I would highly and strongly recommend Pulp and Paper Services as an outstanding resource for analysis and help in solving the simple and the complex challenges of Papermaking."
