A North American packaging producer decided to increase the capacity of one of its facilities with a $140m investment plan encompassing projects on the paper machine and supporting infrastructure. As the project’s size was more than local resources could take on while continuing operations, additional resources were sought from Fisher Arnold. We were charged with providing Owner’s Engineer services and taking a lead role in commissioning. We understand that when employees succeed, businesses succeed. This concept becomes highly important for successful capital investment gains to be realized. After the outage, the startup curve for the project was indicated to be ahead of schedule and possibly a record for the facility.
