Luann Lafreniere has lived in the Jaffrey NH area most of her life. Her professional career began when she ran and owned a plastic molding sales representative business for several years. After selling the business, she worked as a real estate agent but soon realized that manufacturing was where her heart belonged.
She then joined New England Wood Pellet in 2003; and since then, Luann has held many positions and has helped the company grow to become an industry leader. Her most significant roles were as the Project Managers for the construction of our state-of-the-art pellet manufacturing facilities in Schuyler and Deposit, NY.
She currently serves as the company’s first Quality Manager, and has overseen the development and implementation of the company’s ISO-based Quality Management System. Luann was instrumental in guiding the company to become the first company to be certified under the Pellet Fuels Standards Program, a third-party accreditation program providing specifications for residential and commercial-grade fuel.
