ST. PAUL, Minn. – Jan. 16, 2014 – For the fourth consecutive year, Nalco, an Ecolab company, has been selected as the most preferred paper industry supplier by readers of Pulp & Paper International (PPI) magazine, a leading industry trade publication.

Results of PPI’s 2013 Brand Awareness and Preference Study among pulp, paper and paperboard manufacturers around the world indicated that more readers anticipated buying products and services from Nalco in the next twelve months than from any other supplier in five categories of chemical programs.
