Joff Cowan is responsible for developing and implementing Pulmac’s sales, marketing and business development programs.
Since starting out with Pulmac in 1983, Joff has assisted pulp, paper and board mill personnel with finding solutions to their challenges in pulp strength and pulp contaminants. He has codified the experiences of 300 installations over 30 years of troubleshooting and optimization into a best practices approach to implementing pulp quality control programs.
Over the decades mills have “right sized” to become very lean. This challenging process has led to more reliance on suppliers and automation. In being sensitive to the needs of our customers, Pulmac has transitioned from an equipment supplier to delivering innovative products and services to improve the productivity of every mill through actionable pulp quality data.
