Charleston, SC will be the site of our third annual AstenJohnson University class on Pulp Machine Operation. Come join your peers and further your knowledge about pulp machine operation. This class sold out in 2017 and 2018, so act quickly!
This intensive three-day session is for individuals operationally focused such as Superintendents, Machine Managers, Process Engineers or other leaders. The course material (used to facilitate discussion) also makes this training extremely valuable for Pulp operations leaders with a non-machine background. Class size is limited (20 max) to maximize discussion and interactions.
