Business scene for the week of 1/17/18

New division manager
Matthew Taborski has been named division manager for Sierra Pacific Industries’ Quincy lumber mill that employs more than 300 people. He joined the lumber operation in Quincy as a chain puller in 1993 and has had a career progression that led him to becoming the mill manager for SPI’s Aberdeen, Wash., sawmill in 2005 and now the Quincy mill. “My family and I are excited to have this opportunity to move back home and get involved in my community,” Matthew said. He said he enjoys working side-by-side with his team helping them achieve their personal goals along with the company’s goals. “We’ve got a great crew here and I’m excited to see how much we can accomplish together,” he said. “We also have challenges, including finding good people interested in working at the mill and working towards careers like I’ve been able to do at SPI.” George Emmerson, SPI’s president said, “We have made significant investments in the Quincy mill in recent years and with Matt’s mill leadership experience and ties to the Quincy community, the mill is positioned for continued successes.” Matthew is a 1992 graduate of Quincy High School. He and his wife, Jennifer, have three children: Elizabeth, 19, who is attending George Fox University; Jessica, 16; and Austin, 12. Incidentally, if the name sounds familiar, Matthew’s father, Matt, retired from SPI a few years ago after a rewarding 38-year career with the lumber manufacturing company.
