Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Oversee daily operations of the lumber mill, ensuring production schedules and quality standards are met

  • Promote a culture of safety, ensuring all operations comply with OSHA and other relevant safety regulations
  • Collaborate with CEO and senior management to develop and execute strategic plans for operational growth and innovation
  • Collaborate with sales, purchasing, and finance teams, along with ownership, during company financial reviews to maximize long-term performance and profitability
  • Foster strong relationships with reliable suppliers to ensure a consistent supply of high-quality raw materials
