Roseburg Forest Products owns and manages 600,000 acres of timberland across the U.S. which the company harvests to make plywood, particleboard, engineered wood and many other wood products. Roseburg had a problem: unplanned downtime at its facilities.
Brian Richmond, Regional Reliability Manager at Roseburg, previously served 20 years in the U.S. Navy, where he was a Maintenance and Program Manager for nuclear submarines. He applied everything he had learnt maintaining nuclear submarines to developing a reliability program for Roseburg. The result was that over an eight month period, Roseburg saved $472,000 in downtime costs at a single facility.
