Dedicated OneFiber Lab

Established in 2016, our OneFiber Lab is strategically located within our Engineered Paper production facility in Quimperlé, France. The lab offers state-of-the-art capabilities and best practice processes to provide our customers a bridge from today’s product development challenges to tomorrow’s industry-leading innovations.


Its purpose is to bring together dedicated equipment and cross-functional, in-house expertise to accelerate product development and prototype activities—allowing customers to test ideas and uncover new product possibilities.


Benefits of our OneFiber Lab:


  • Ideation to Conception: Our multi-disciplinary team of experts partners with customers to identify the possibilities and advantages of new product development ideas—but it doesn’t stop there. Thanks to our in-house expertise and production assets, we can provide in-house testing capabilities to validate or rethink R&D efforts.
  • Dedicated Pilot Equipment: We have multiple, dedicated pilot machines that are aimed at rapidly producing plug-and-play prototypes, which can then be further tested and refined in a real-world production environment on paper machines.
  • Real-World Protyping: Our team and equipment offer the opportunity to go from concept ideas to semi-commercial prototypes, and from semi-commercial to market-ready prototypes.
  • Educational Applications: Our OneFiber Academy is an opportunity for our SWM team to share our production and R&D expertise with our customers. Focus areas include paper-making and process training, disruptive prototyping, and pilot partner resources.
