Forest Products

Helping clients write new chapters for their operations

With over 30 years of experience designing and building in the Forest Products market, our clients depend on our knowledge and expertise to optimize their operations. We have worked in pulp mills, paper mills, and woodyards on a wide array of products for Fortune 500 companies. We specialize in upgrading wood handling, pulping and bleaching, causticizing and chemical recovery, stock prep, and recycling systems as well as paper machines and roll handling systems. Many of our engineers and constructors bring prior mill operations and maintenance experience to our project teams, providing innovative solutions for your specific objectives. ITAC’s leadership has even owned and operated its own wood pellet manufacturing facility and uniquely understands the pressure and challenges of a 24/7 operation in this market.

Our design-build project portfolio includes FEL development, detailed engineering and design, construction, and construction management in mills producing linerboard, containerboard, corrugating medium, fine papers, tissue, newsprint, filter media, cigarettes (flax), and reconstituted tobacco products.  We collaborate with our clients to develop the project scope, schedule, and cost and support their teams with purchasing, contracting, managing, installing, and starting-up their projects safely and timely.
