He has spent the last 25 years with Coorstek / Wilbanks Ceramics in a variety of design, engineering and sales positions, bringing with him “extensive knowledge and experience with ceramics manufacturing” and a “thorough understanding of mill customer needs and expectations,” describes the company.

Edwards will play an active role in Coldwater’s engineering, manufacturing, quoting, training and selling of the product line.

In October, Coldwater announced its acquisition of Coorstek’s paper machine drainage elements business as part of its strategic plan to be the “most reliable supplier of innovative consumables and optimization products.” Edwards will play a key role in Coldwater’s success selling ceramics to the global paper industry and the Coorstek assets required to assemble, grind, and repair these precision ceramic drainage elements are being relocated from Hillsboro, Ore., to Coldwater’s Atlanta, Ga., manufacturing facility.
