Announcement: Employee Referral Program

HR is excited to announce our new Employee Referral Program!

At Redwood Plastics and Rubber, employees are our primary assets. We are continually on the lookout for innovative minds that think outside the box and help us grow! Who better than our current employees who work here, build friendships here, have fun here, and influence the culture here to help us find and hire the best people to contribute to our future successes?

As a Redwood employee, you have firsthand knowledge of who we are and what we do. You have experience with our benefits package. You know the culture. You are proud of our products, our innovations and our people. These things make you an excellent recruiter.

When you refer a candidate to Redwood that we ultimately hire, you qualify for the following bonus’:

  1. $250 when the referred employee passes probation; and
  2. $500 when the referred employee completes 1 year of service.

Spokane, Baseball, and Coffee

Highlighting a recent application by our Spokane location. They had been approached by Dutch Coffee Brothers to supply clear plastic to protect their storefront’s vinyl wrap. This is at Avista Stadium, home of the Spokane Indians baseball team. Polycarbonate was chosen both for its high-strength (which resists vandalism) and that it accepts drilling better than acrylic. Spokane branch supplied several sheets of clear 3/16″ thick general purpose polycarbonate for the job the drilling and assembly was done on site.

The picture below is of the Dutch Bros. Coffee team. While the polycarbonate is clear you can see it in front of the graphics.


Training Complete

Congrats to Rob Tenetuik, Chris Turner and Matt Blom for completing Redwood’s product training last week! It was a special session as Nate, Nylatech’s new Technical Sales rep, also attended.

The guys really hit it off and enjoyed their time out here…Minus Chris’ lesson on “consumer plastics” he learned the hard way: inside his food! And Nate, the sole American of the group, learning that the definition of what is “iced tea” gets lost in translation when you come to Canada.

Thanks go to Don McMillan for all his hard work keeping those guys focused for four days. It was a feat!

The important note for Redwood employees involved in sales is that the training slides in your binders are now available digitally in PDF form. Email Matt at if you’re interested in a digital copy.
