Savell was truly a super Engineer and wonderful person to work with! We traveled so much to Sweden, Finland over 25 years looking at , engineering, buying Paper Machines and finally Macon Georgia to install the new Coated Board Machine ! And we traveled to Macon every week together on Monday and Friday back home to West Monroe.

And Savell and the team while working long hours out of town for many years did have our time for laughs and comradeship !

I really liked Savell!
