Ahlstrom Corporation Turns to Verizon Business for Essential Operational Resilience
Ahlstrom is an innovative organisation with specialised technical expertise- and some 500 patents-in the production of natural and synthetic fibre-based specialty papers and non-woven materials. With over 6,000 employees in more than 20 countries, Ahlstrom needed a reliable global infrastructure to facilitate close collaboration between its offices, production plants, suppliers and customers. By August 2006, network resilience had become a serious concern for Ahlstrom, prompting the company to invite six leading providers-including its incumbent network provider and Verizon Business-to tender for a replacement corporate network service. When they assessed the Verizon Business proposition they knew it was right for them, and when they met with the Verizon Business team they knew they were the right people for them.
