Paul Lang (Wood Products Processing)

Lauten Woodworking – North Vancouver, BC
Hey UBC Forestry! Paul here. I am quite excited to share my experiences at my current 8 month Co-op placement at Lauten Woodworking Limited. Lauten Woodworking is a manufacturer of high quality residential and commercial millwork located out of North Vancouver. My position at Lauten has given me insight into how a woodworking company runs. My role focused highly on the logistics of running a business, ranging from the administrative duties of completing payroll for staff and tracking business expenses, to supply chain and inventory management. It is such a cool and rewarding feeling to be able to apply the knowledge I have learned in the courses I’ve taken so far in Wood Product Processing. I worked closely with the two owners of Lauten Woodworking and they, along with their team, have been very welcoming to me. It is great to have been a part of such a close group of co-workers. I have always been aiming towards a career in the secondary side of wood product processing and this position has confirmed my aspirations. Thank you to the Co-op program and to Lauten Woodworking for making this opportunity possible!
