Frank Werling, Head of Technical, Engineering and Design at Metsä Wood, began his career in the timber industry at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, where he studied Civil/Structural Engineering with a focus on steel and timber constructions. Alongside his studies, Frank worked for a publisher specialising in literature for German timber engineering.
Frank went on to work as a structural engineer for Europe’s leader in lightweight portal frame steel buildings, where he cut his teeth in the world of modular building systems.
