Why was this successful?

Success was accomplished by providing leadership through personal example. The main objective in obtaining positive results is to lead, motivate and direct teams by emerging employees’ collective talent and to contribute to the growth and increase of stakeholder’s value.

Open-mindedness, the perception of potential and opportunities, and trust in one’s personal resources are the most important drivers for effective actions.

How will my knowledge
benefit your company?

Together with domestic and international experiences in manufacturing practices, I have an exceptional expertise in OSB manufacturing processes, and in the technical aspects of developing quality panels.

My goal and my ambition always were and always will be to develop the best quality panels. What makes the best quality? The best quality panel is board with proper density, moisture content, resin distribution, with proper board thickness, and an excellent durability for its application.

This starts from an understanding of wood cell and from comprehension how the wood cell is reacting to heat, moisture, and pressure throughout the entire OSB cycle from log to ready panel. This expertise extends later into the value-added aspect where an accurate decision must be made to determine what kind of raw material should be used in the production of high-quality products.

Logs moisture content, debarking, logs conditioning, stranding, drying, blending, forming, pressing, storage, and handling they all have a significant impact on the final product. This “secret” starts right at the wood cell level, where free water and bound water movement must be properly understood.

My technical process knowledge and wood handling expertise from the forest to ready product helped me in developing very competitive and cost-effective manufacturing operations.
