of the whey powder production.

NAPCON® was rewarded already back in 2011 with the "Viva Automation" recognition
prize and this was actually one of the reasons for Valio to contact us", says
Jarmo Suominen, Managing Director of Neste Jacobs. "The agreement with Valio
supports Neste Jacobs' vision to be the preferred solution provider for Finnish
technology companies and increases the brand awareness of the NAPCON® Product

"We considered several APC providers but became convinced of Neste Jacobs'
expertise and the great features of the NAPCON® Technology. Therefore, the
decision to co-operate with Neste Jacobs was very easy to make", says Antero

implementation of APC technology also in Valio's other production factories and
hope that we will be able to continue the good cooperation with Neste Jacobs
also in this area."
