Comments

Jean-Marc Dubois has been in the building industry for over thirty years, and was the Engineered Wood Products market development manager for Weyerhaeuser Company’s two regional facilities in Pennsylvania beginning in 1987. Jean-Marc’s responsibilities included design and takeoff services with Mitek, Louisiana Pacific, Trusjoist, and Weyerhaeuser products and software.

Jean-Marc is now the northeast US regional sales manager for Nordic Engineered Wood, a vertically integrated sustainable lumber and Engineered Wood products company. Since 2001 he has provided product training and marketing support for an expanding network of architects, designers, dealers and distributors from Maine to Illinois, and through the mid-Atlantic States. Jean-Marc has been instrumental in the development and production of a number of engineered wood products during his tenure with Nordic, including glue-laminated engineered studs, glue-laminated-lumber flanged I-joists, and most recently, a unique framing system that reduces thermal bridging in the building envelope.

Mathias Oberholzer, born in 1980, moved from Canada back to Switzerland after completing high school in 1999 in order to do a 3-year carpentry apprenticeship. After receiving his diploma he worked as a carpenter for various Swiss companies before beginning his studies at the Berne University of Applied Sciences in Biel, Switzerland in 2003. During this time he also took part in a mandatory one-year engineering internship which he spent at Bensonwood in Walpole, New Hampshire. He completed the 4-year program with a degree in wood engineering specializing in structures.

Mathias returned to Canada in 2007 to work for Cadwork in Montreal and since 2009 he works as a project manager for Nordic Wood Structures in the same city.
