JoeScan’s New “Longest Running” Contest

12 July 2018

In an effort to reward customers for their loyalty to JoeScan’s products, the sawmill scanning solution provider has created a contest celebrating reliability and longevity. Mills are invited to enter and see if they are currently operating the “Longest Running JoeScan.”

“We’ve always been proud of the long-lasting performance sawmills can expect from our scanners,” says JoeScan founder Joey Nelson. “But we recently realized that we don’t know exactly which one of our units has been hard at work the longest. This contest is a great chance for us to find out, and for us to honor the mills that have counted on us the longest.”

Sawmills that are currently running JoeScan scan heads can enter in one of three ways:

  1. By visiting www.joescan.com contest and filling out a short form.
  2. By emailing contest@joescan.com with the name of your mill, and the approximate date of install for your JoeScan hardware.
  3. By sharing a photo of the hardware to social media, using the hashtag #LongestRunningJoescan.

JoeScan will cross reference the entries with their records and identify a winner by September 30, 2018.

The winner will then be invited to attend the 2018 Timber Processing & Energy Expo show as JoeScan’s special guest. They will also be presented with an award at a special ceremony during the show, recognising their hard work, dedication, and commitment to quality sawmill scanning.
