SW&B has long been established as one of the leaders in pulp and paper mill construction. With a focus on small- to medium-sized projects between $5 million and $25 million, we are capable of delivering projects in all phases of pulp and paper mill construction, including new installations, retrofits and maintenance programs.
We began expanding our presence in the late 1990s, experiencing success in the areas of chemicals, power, non-woven, customer products and building services. Now under the KBR umbrella, SW&B continues to support our Pulp and Paper clients while also building our resume in these other industries.
