General superintendent – Elk Lake, Eacom Timber Corp.
Travas has held a master electrician license with an industrial specialization for over 20 years. After completing his apprenticeship, he joined EACOM’s Elk Lake sawmill as a shift electrician. Having a curious mind, Travas left Elk Lake to pursue experience in other industries. The outside experience was very beneficial but Travas realized he feels most at home working within the timber industry. Travas returned to Elk Lake as the general superintendent after spending a number of years working with EACOM’s Special Projects group where he had the opportunity to work on many capital projects from inception to commissioning. Travas’ grasp on data analysis and tracking as well as his understanding of electrical systems places him in a unique position. As an electrician he understands where the data is pulled from and where there is room to get more information to improve the process.
