Asset Management Excellence Journey at Irving Tissue
Charles Scott is the Maintenance Project Co-ordinator for Project Tiger in Macon, Georgia, and the Senior Technical Operations Advisor for Irving Tissue consumer products.
Charles started with Irving Tissue, in Dieppe, N.B., at its converting mill in 1994 as a machine operator. Shortly after, he transferred to the maintenance department where he apprenticed as an industrial mechanic. Around 2001, he began implementing some reliability programs, starting with Vibration Analysis, Lubrication, and Ultrasonic. During these years, he took many vibration analysis courses and is now a category III CMVA certified vibration analyst. After much success with these programs and a desire to advance, he took on the role of maintenance co-ordinator in 2017, and then enrolled and completed the MMP certification in December 2018.
Since October 2017, he has helped implement the maintenance systems for a greenfield tissue mill expansion in Macon, Georgia. He is also now responsible for leading maintenance programs for all our four tissue operations, including a large MRO cleansing project across the corporation. In this role, he acts as a maintenance advisor for the continuous improvement of all of the asset management programs.
