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.
Growing again, this time our Spokane location is pleased to welcome Chad Olsen in the role of Technical Sales.

Fall is in the air and so is hiring at Redwood Plastics. We have not one but three new employees to introduce you too!
Sarah Fuller has joined our Atlanta branch in an Inside Sales Support role. Sarah will assist Atlanta’s inside sales staff in quotations, putting through purchase orders, and similar duties. Sarah strives to be positive in all aspects of her life. She is enthusiastic and adventurous and hates laziness and negative attitudes (she’ll do well here!). Her favorite hobbies are exploring, meeting new friends, four-wheeling, and camping. She has a 16 month old and her husband, Bud, back at home.
Next up we have Brian Carmichael. Brian has joined Vancouver’s Technical Outside Sales Team and brings a wealth of experience to the job. He has an expansive territory to cover including Vancouver Island but has so far met that challenge with gusto!
Last but not least we have Chris Tew. Chris is actually the son of long-time Redwood Plastics Technical Sales Representative Jimmy Tew. Chris is joining our Atlanta branch as part of the Inside Sales team. For Chris it’s all about family – particularly his sons Chris Jr. and Chase. Chris gets the most enjoyment out of his life when he’s with his sons and spending time with them is his favorite thing in the world. However, he also enjoys readying, golf, and eating chicken “just about any way you can cook it.”
