Suring, WI — Diversified Woodcrafts is pleased to welcome Matthew Oberg as the manager of product development. Oberg will be responsible for managing company product lines over the life of the product from concept through development, sale launch and discontinuance.
Before joining the team at Diversified Woodcrafts, Oberg worked at Summit Bodyworks as a wood shop manager and vehicle designer engineer from 2015–2021. Prior to that, he was a custom millwork designer/fabricator at EliSon’s Workshop from 2013–2015.
“Even at a young age, I had a natural and profound appreciation for architecture and the design of space,” said Oberg. “Coupling this passion with the opportunity to design at Diversified Woodcrafts gives me a great sense of fulfillment.”
Oberg has also won several awards including first place for Urban Bicycle Pedal Design at the 2010 VP Components Design Competition and the Patriotic Employer Award for Support of the Guard and Reserve in 2018.
