Ultra Green Pulp Manager

An Expansive Search

Ultra Green manufactures and supplies disposable plates, cups, and cutlery are 100% biodegradable, compostable, and sustainable to the foodservice and retail industries. Making “tree-free”, non petroleum based products can present major challenges….like where do you find an expert in wheat straw pulping processes for a North Dakota based manufacturing facility?

Where did we find a Wheat Pulp expert for a North Dakota based green product manufacturing facility? … why Spain, of course!

To recruit the person that a client really needs you sometimes have to look a long way from home (a Rolodex just doesn’t cut it sometimes). The client was very specific, “We need someone who can help us make high yield straw pulp at the lowest Schopper-Riegler degree as possible” (huh?). The hire had been there / done that in Spain, China, Turkmenistan, Jordan, Egypt, Tunis, France and Russia. Look out North Dakota!
