Also ABB's reputation as a reliable supplier for high quality collaborative production management systems eased the decision making process. Kotkamills Oy expects from the new system user-friendliness, operation reliability, as well as fast and reliable production and warehouse management. In addition to this the equipment and solutions are expected to bring cost savings both in maintenance costs of the new system as well as managing the processes at the mill", says Peter Danielsbacka, Project Manager from Kotkamills Oy.
