Analysis is Our Passion

Pulp and Paper Physical and Optical Testing
"Phil Sirois at Pulp and Paper Services has completed projects for different companies that I have worked for and his response has always been very rapid and thorough. Some of his fiber analyses were critical in developing new products that eventually were patented using some of Pulp and Paper Services data. Phil also is very careful about his conclusions knowing that serious decisions are being made based on his data. I fully trust the work is completed by Pulp and Paper Services."
