Since taking over the reins of the engineering department in January 2018, Jacques Lajoie has initiated a development management plan. With wind in the sails and having increased their sales figures by over 40% in the course of the past two years, Carbotech must ensure that its organizational structure follows
as well. For these same reasons, Carbotech is proud to announce that Pierre Lafond and Michel Duchesne have joined the Carbotech’s troops along with Jacques Lajoie.
Duchesne will hold the title of Project Manager for automation and control. One of his key missions will be to ensure the technological and electrical implantation of equipment at Carbotech.
As for Pierre Lafond, he is joining the management team in the role of Project Management Director. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Mr. Lafond will ensure the supervision and efficiency of all projects being implemented by Carbotech.
“For some time now, the quantity and size of projects have been increasing. The addition of designers, technicians and reference personnel such as Duchesne and Lafond will ensure maintaining closeness and accessibility of our project and engineering department with our clients.” adds Lajoie, Engineering Director at Carbotech. “Both with our existing equipment as well as our R&D projects, the technology on the market has improved rapidly and with Duchesne we are ensuring that our equipment will continue to integrate cutting edge technologies.”
With a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Montréal Polytechnique Technical University, Lafond has extensive experience in the sawmill equipment industry. His enthusiasm, analytical structure, and expertise across various sectors in the sawmill industry confirm that he is the right person to solidify and push Carbotech forward.
Duchesne joins the engineering and R&D team with an impressive wealth of experience and knowledge. With a certificate in electricity and in communication, he has spent the past 30 years in developing, improving and integrating technology and mechanical equipment.
