Jerry Uhland, CEO of CalPlant

I am the owner operator of the world’s first rice straw-based medium density fiberboard (MDF) plant—a $450 million project.  I began working with Jody at the start of construction in 2017 due to a myriad of issues our greenfield construction and startup company was experiencing, and it was Jody’s energy, creativity, and her vast network that were the catalysts for resolving the issues. If a company or project in northern California needs assistance, the first person you should contact is Jody Samons!
