Who We Are

Offering our partners customized solutions according to their needs: Since we founded the SAPP Management AG back in 2004, it has always been our premise to provide our clients within the international pulp and paper industry the strategic support they expect and deserve. While initially working with employees on a contract basis, in 2013, we decided to count primarily on in-house employees to keep the steadily growing expertise within our company. Having the necessary workforce in-house allowed us to specialize on certain areas that met the industry’s demands, namely the development of mills and the assessment of boilers and turbines.

In 2016, we implemented our Quality Management division and were certified according to EN ISO 9001:2015. One year later, in 2017, we introduced our newest service — Smart Data Analytics — which already proved to be of essential importance for the future of companies in the pulp and paper industry.
