“I’ve always liked to build things”, says Ben “It is always interesting to see the designs come off the page and this project is an exciting challenge so early in my career.” 

“The size of the projects we are now doing makes it a great time to be a young engineer,” says John who has worked at the pulp mill for 25 years and been part of many changes as part of the company’s continuous investment in new technology. “There is no shortage of opportunities to learn and to develop.”
