AJ University

A class of our own.

We’re committed to investing in the education of future papermakers. That's why we founded AJ University. Offered since 2005 at our Charleston, South Carolina headquarters, AJ University is a unique series of classes and coursework designed to instruct papermakers of all experience levels on the nuances of clothing, equipment, machine analysis and diagnostics. In addition to traditional classroom instruction, our roundtables and seminars provide attendees with a forum for discussing the issues they face day-to-day and sharing best practices across our industry.

Papermaking Fundamentals: Printing & Writing (May 2023)

May 8-12, 2023
Charleston, SC

AstenJohnson University (AJU) was established in 2005 as one way to invest in the development of future papermakers and to provide a forum for learning and sharing of common business practices. This AJU session will focus on issues associated with the printing and writing grade. By concentrating on a specific paper grade, we will be able to provide students with specific, applicable information that can be put into practice immediately upon returning to the mill. We will discuss actual papermaking experiences in class, so we encourage participants to bring examples of past problems or current challenges to explore in class.
