We here at IPP/T magazine are starting the new year with a new editorial advisory board, and we welcome these major players in the processing manufacturing sector to help guide us through 2022, providing their extensive insight and expertise on how we can better serve you the reader.
Our board members consist of:
Marc Brand, Director of Sales & Service, Alpha Controls & Instrumentation

In addition to Marc’s tenure in the industry, he is also an electronics technologist, with a postgraduate in Biomedical Engineering Technology.
“Canada faces many challenges within our manufacturing sector and COVID has further exposed our weaknesses. Having the ability to manufacture within Canada will definitely help keep up with the customer demand,” says Brand.
Paul C. Chabot, National Sales Director, ABB, Measurement & Analytics Division
Early in his career, Paul participated in the implementation of Process Analytical in North America and in Europe. He then joined ABB in 2000, where he has held a variety of sales and marketing positions in Canada and in the United States. He is currently Global Market Manager for optical process analyzers, and National Sales Director for Measurement & Analytics.
“Our biggest challenge is to get the huge number of connected devices to provide tangible information instead of only data. Leveraging data and domain expertise to address specific needs will enhance the value of the measurement,” says Chabot.
Francois Gagne, Marketing Manager Endress+Hauser
He has held a variety of roles in B2B marketing and sales over the past 20 years, having joined Endress+Hauser Canada in 2018, and was recently promoted to Marketing Manager.

Jason Mapplebeck, MBA – Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SAMSON Controls Inc. Canada
He has worked in the process automation industry for more than 15 years, with progressive roles that have provided him with experience in field bus technologies, industrial ethernet as well as hands on and sales experience of field instrumentation, control valves and regulators for customers across Canada in all industry sectors.
“My colleagues and I are passionate about helping Canadian manufacturing modernize their production processes by utilizing best in class products with IIoT capabilities so that we can help the customer today while also offering a future proof solution that can grow and adapt with their ever changes demands,” says Mapplebeck.
Stefano Zambon, Instrumentation Specialist, Wajax Industrial Components
He has been a product application specialist in instrumentation for the business development group at Wajax for more than 25 years and was previously at Foxboro for more than 10 years. Zambon is a graduate of the Vanier College Instrumentation Technology program.
“In Canada we are facing decline in our competitiveness in the manufacturing sector. The present pandemic situation only exposes our internal struggles. Technological innovation and its application must enable our manufacturing sectors to be more competitive. Canada must be better suited to the changing environment as well become more self-sufficient,” says Zambon.
We at IPP/T magazine look forward to working with these heavy hitters in the industry and welcome their input to help us produce the best product possible for you, the reader.
