Redwood Plastics and Rubber was rewarded richly with individual and team honors at the recent IAPD (International Association of Plastics Distribution) convention in Chicago this past week. As a team we brought home the Education Circle of Champions Gold Award once again! Having our employees do their work with the firm foundation of IAPD education is a priority for our company and we will continue to encourage educational growth. Our VP of Marketing, Angela Rodenburgh, brought home the Pacesetter Award. This award is given each year to the IAPD member who takes charge, volunteers his or her time, in moving the IAPD forward as well as the plastics industry as whole. Angela has been in the forefront for years working on plastics as a career for women, on how new regulation affects the industry, and has been on several committees within the IAPD.
Secondly, Matt Blom also in our marketing department was the fourth person inducted into the “Honor Society”. This society is for individuals who have gone above and beyond in their pursuit of being plastic experts and have personally embraced the educational opportunities the IAPD affords. Matt had completed all other available courses when he offered to be the “guinea pig” to take the brand new course “Excellence In Sales Level II”. This test took over a year to complete and required a 100% score to pass.
Congratulations to both members of our Marketing team and all our employees for embracing education!
Redwood Plastics’ Langley, BC location is proud to announce the promotion of Jared Doppenberg to Inside Sales Representative. Jared has followed the path of being a fabricator for five years of his career, 2-1/2 of those spent with Redwood. Jared has proven to be more than just a fabricator: he has a passion for his work, for being honest, hardworking, and going above and beyond his duties. He is sensitive to the needs of his coworkers and we’re sure that will translate to outstanding customer service in his new role dealing with our valuable customers!
In his downtime Jared has some interesting hobbies. He enjoys working on his import Toyota (extra powerful engines and right seat drive) or flying his growing collection of drones. His musical choice is Funk but at least “it’s not country”.
Disclaimer: Gannon himself used that nickname introducing himself to some coworkers earlier!
Redwood Plastics’ marketing department is pleased to announce the hiring of Gannon Andrews as our new Marketing Assistant in a part-time role as he continues to attend University.

His past work experience include being a shipper/receiver, assisting in purchasing, and inventory management. Gannon grew up locally near the branch and is Langley born and raised. His hobbies are tied to the Fine Arts as he is a classically trained vocal, plays the guitar, and overall is keenly interested in music related activities as his primary hobby.
Woodland branch is proud to announce the hiring of Dave Corder to their outside sales team. Dave has been tasked with maintaining and expanding Redwood’s growth in the Portland Metro and Willamette Valley territory. Dave brings with him over 25 years of experience in related industries. When he’s not working, Dave is a big music fan and actually played drums for a rock band when younger. He also enjoys riding around in anything with two – or four – wheels on it. Most impressively, Dave has immediately fit in with Redwood Woodland’s self-described “quirky” culture.
