Promotion Alert! Jared Doppenberg

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”.

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 mblom@redwoodplastics.com if you’re interested in a digital copy.
