We explore this revitalization through the eyes of the president and CEO of the AV Group, Peter Vinall.On January 16, 2006, Vinall, along with approximately 270 employees, opened the doors to the AV Nackawic mill, a facility that had been dormant for almost 15 months.
...
"This was a mill that many felt initially did not put up a fight for survival," said Peter Vinall, president and CEO, AV Group.
...
"Only one word could describe the mood of that day and it is euphoria," described Vinall.
...
Commenting on the challenges to the revitalized mill, Peter Vinall said, "We are committed to finding innovative ways of remaining competitive.By taking a collaborative approach with our employees and key stakeholders, and embracing emerging technologies, we'll succeed.With a flexible work force and a plant that will be able to readily change product from dissolving pulp to kraft pulp and back, we are well-placed for success."
On working with a large, India-based conglomerate, Vinall said, "They offer us reasonable liberty in managing our affairs, while at the same time providing broad technical support.They stand for value chain optimization corporately, and they view us as a long-term investment."The Aditya Birla Group regards itself as India's first global corporation, being a player in 72 manufacturing units and sectoral services in India, Thailand, Philippines, Egypt, Australia, China and Canada. Viscose staple fibre, non-ferrous metals, cements, viscose filament yarn, branded apparel, carbon black, chemicals, fertilizers, and sponge iron are just some of its products.
"We, as managers, are open, straightforward and transparent," said Vinall.
