Our KFT team
KFT started an intensive training program for its core staff in early November 2019. With Indigenous Forestry Initiative funds to assist with training and capacity building, KFT brought in the former production managers who ran the Freegro™ manufacturing plant in Prince Rupert B.C. (themselves First Nations) for close to 10 years. They transferred the manufacturing best practices to the Khowutzun-led crew in a 4-day intensive training program that was video documented. KFT also brought in the same technician from Automatex Ltd. that set up and commissioned the Automatex robotic seam-sewing machine to do training in the best practice operation of that machine. KFT staff are now on a good training trajectory to be able to do all of the SOPs associated with this very advanced assembly line.
