#RichardsonIs is a new campaign that we are launching to introduce you to some of the great people who work for our company.

This week, #RichardsonIs…Josh, Operations Supervisor at our Richardson Oilseed canola processing facility in Yorkton, SK. Josh is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the plant, ensuring it is being run safely and efficiently at all times.

The primary focus of his job is in the refinery department, where he works closely with operators to produce high quality canola oil. To ensure this, numerous tests are conducted during a 24-hour period on oil samples from different stages in the refinery process.

“The different challenges that come with this job is what I like best about my role.” For the Yorkton team, this means that they always need to be prepared to adjust their methods accordingly to work efficiently with the new crop. This involves working with our operators to find new optimum operating settings for the new process. “Vendors in the vegetable oil industry are always coming out with new products and technologies to assist with some of these challenges, and it’s our responsibility to research and test these products to see if they will meet our standards.”

For Josh, finding a career in agriculture was an obvious choice. “I’ve lived in Saskatchewan my whole life and ag is one of the main economical drivers in the province. When I was given the opportunity to join Richardson, it wasn’t something I could pass up. I’m also fortunate that this job allows me the time to do what I love most, like spending time with my wife and our two daughters, who are five and two. I get to coach my daughter’s little league team and even manage to get out on the golf course every now and then.”
