Ashland Inc., Wilmington, Del., USA, was named Best Chemical Supplier of the Year for the Pulp and Paper segment by the Brazilian Pulp & Paper Association (ABTCP) at its recent annual awards. Flavio Parrilha Martins, commercial leader paper, Brazil, accepted the award on behalf of Ashland Water Technologies.

This award was the result of a survey conducted among the pulp and paper companies in Brazil, which gave Ashland the winning endorsement. Ashland was chosen by many pulp and paper companies for its innovative products, technical support, and problem-solving skills.

"Ashland has been a leading supplier of specialty chemicals to the Brazilian pulp and paper industry for many years and we are delighted to receive this award from ABTCP," said Wanderley Flosi Filho, commercial director, Ashland Water Technologies, Latin America. "This award is excellent recognition from the industry and a proof that, with good chemistry great things happen."

ABTCP held its 45rd Pulp and Paper International Congress and Exhibition last month at the Transamérica ExpoCenter in Sao Paulo. There were more than 6,000 attendees from many countries around the world who took part in this three-day convention.

Ashland Water Technologies is a global producer of papermaking chemicals and a specialty chemical supplier to the pulp, mining, food and beverage, paper, chemical processing, general manufacturing, institutional, and municipal markets.
