"Over the past four years, we have gone out of our way to meet the ever- changing needs of customers. In addition to servicing them with quality products delivered on time, we have leveraged the Web to foster closer relationships via e-Paper(TM) - one of the most comprehensive business-to- business application in the paper and forest products industry.
