Who teaches the course?
John Henry, CPP, is a 20-plus-year veteran of packaging and plant operations. He brings his real-world experience with equipment issues to the seminar. The value of his consulting practice—changeover.com—moved him into the role of author and speaker on packaging machinery. Audiences at Pack Expo shows have heard him speak, and his regular column in Food & Drug Packaging magazine delivers machinery insights. He teaches at the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico.
