The Green Side
Richard Lee - Chief Sawyer & Green Side Foreman
Richard has been with Northwood since 1987. He is a highly experienced Sawyer and is jointly in charge of our FSC® and PEFC™ certification. Richard is affectionately known as ‘Mr Knowledge’, knowing everything there is to know about wood. Richard lives in the National Park in Cumbria and works a flexi-shift so he can spend time fishing when not cutting oak for our orders.
Karol Kovacs - Sawyer & Forklift Driver
Karol has acquired a huge knowledge whilst working at Northwood. He is our operative specialising on the Multi-Rip Resaw and has become a competent sawyer, with the responsibility of operating the main band mill. He is waste-conscious and can visualise the most efficient cuts to make, ensuring a high quality and sustainable product reaches each customer's hands.
Richard Uhlik - Mill Operative
Richard has enjoyed the challenge of learning how to operate large sawmill equipment. He is always smiling and is an efficient, conscientious member of staff, that loves to be kept busy.
David Black - Mill Operative & Forklift Driver
Dave joined Northwood in 2009 as a Labourer and Forklift Driver and is always clearing up the yard. With the addition of our biomass systems, David has taken on responsibilities including bagging all the pellets before being sold to customers. We firmly believe that Northwood has the cleanest sawmill in England.
