The day starts at 7:30 am with calls to the ANDRITZ teams about customer orders, followed by a confidential visit by Reynolds to WestRock Tacoma Mill (the SPECTRUM team was not allowed into the mill on this occasion). While Reynolds was at the mill, SPECTRUM caught up with Paul Kanoke, Operations Maintenance Coordinator, of WestRock who talked about his experience working with Reynolds. He says: “I met George around 2008 and we have done a lot of work together to make machines run better, for instance, optimizing refi ners. We have had a lot of successes in making paper machines run for longer and improving uptime.”


Next mill on the agenda is Caraustar, Tacoma, to talk to Mark Lindstrom, Mill Manager, about current projects and future proposals for the mill. Lindstrom says of Reynolds: “I’ve known George for 10 years now; he has been very receptive, and always puts us in touch with the right people at ANDRITZ when we have particular challenges or demands. He is also great for new ideas, and a different approach to looking at things.”
