A Familiar Face…

Redwood Plastics is welcoming Jim Vail onboard as Business Development Manager. Jim has established anVail_1 impressive career in plastics over the last 36 years. Starting with Industrial Plastics Inc., Jim worked with lumber and paper mills – two of Redwood’s key industries. Later, as West Coast Regional Sales Manager for Ultra Poly and then Polymer Industries, Jim worked closely with Redwood’s sales staff on new applications and assisted us in problem solving for our customers.

When Jim became available recently it was a no-brainer to not pass up on his extensive experience and contacts. His relationships within Redwood itself made him a natural fit. While Jim will be based out of our Woodland, Washington location – he is part of Redwood’s corporate staff and will work with all the branches.

In addition to his fondness for our people, Jim enjoys how his career has brought him full circle, “This move puts me back to my roots…developing new business and product applications in the lumber, paper and food processing markets.”

 

Welcoming Two New Faces

Redwood Plastics is pleased to announce two new members: Brad Wilson and Barret Magdalin. Brad is a familybrad-wilson man who has joined our Atlanta branch in Outside Sales. Brad will be finding  business in emerging opportunities, such as new mills or packaging facilities being built. Brad enjoys spending time with his family and officiates high school basketball and volleyball. Brad likes Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and his sports. Brad’s biggest dislike? His daughter Emily heading off to college this year.

Barret has joined Saskatoon branch as their new Outside Sales rep. Barret has abarret couple kids: Kaila and Parker, both in their teens. He is a rabid Saskatchewan Roughriders fan – which is fine, but he is also a die-hard Toronto Maple Leaf’s fan – and he would prefer the jeers to be left to a minimum on that one! Barret enjoys keeping up with his two favorite teams…When he isn’t running around with his teenagers!

 

Bye Al!

We want to give a little send off to our outgoing Edmonton branch manager, Al Liptak, who is retiring. It will be cigars and sun for Al from now on. Longtime outside sales rep Gilles Bileau has accepted the position of branch manager while Tom Ough will manage the inside and warehouse under the new position of Operations Manager.

Congrats Al on a job well done!

 

Welcome Tyler!

Atlanta branch is pleased to welcome Tyler Marsh into the fold. Tyler will be working in outside sales and has already been with the branch for a few weeks, attending the Strongwell tour in late September with the rest of our crew. Tyler is a local boy, growing up in Woodstock, GA and attended the University of South Carolina. Tyler is an avid, very low handicap golfer and enjoys spending time with friends, family and his fiancee. Tyler describes himself as competitive and disliking negativity, tardiness…And mushrooms! Congratulations are in order as Tyler and his fiancee, Jenn, will be married this April in Roswell, GA.

Tyler is excited to develop Redwood business in new territories and we are happy to have him!
