About the cooperation between Voith Paper and Liansheng
Ten years ago the cooperation between Voith Paper and Liansheng started with roll servicing. At the end of 2011, the parties signed a contract for a board machine, the PM 8, which expanded the mutual cooperation to the whole paper machine business. Five years later, Liansheng has again selected Voith as its new paper machine supplier. This order testifies to the customer’s acknowledgment of Voith for years of high quality products and service.
