Poll outcome: Is one PMC supplier enough?

The majority of our newsletter readers disagreed on this question:

"If the product price wouldn’t matter, would you be perfectly happy with only 1 supplier per PMC position?"


In May 2019, more than 80 newsletter readers gave their opinion in this poll. Of all respondents, 76% disagree with this statement. 

What was the opinion per type of newsletter reader: 

40% is represented by Papermakers from which 71% disagreed.

36% is represented by Paper Machine Clothing suppliers from which 82% disagreed.

24% is represented by suppliers in the Paper Industry from which 75% disagreed.


This outcome is a start to support my vision of why Paper Machine Clothing trials are essential to the future of the Paper Industry.
