AFT: the company

Aikawa Fiber Technologies (AFT) can trace its roots to the Union Screen Plate Company 100+ years ago. No other supplier to the pulp and paper industry has as much screen design, manufacturing, and screening applications experience.

We are truly a global supplier, serving customers in all key market areas with advanced components and optimized systems. Our manufacturing network includes:

  • Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada (established in 1903)
  • Varkaus, Finland (from 1945)
