Partial view of Jotul Operations in Portland
I recently traveled to the Portland Maine headquarters of Jotul North America where I met with Brett Watson, the President of American Operations. I was given a tour of the facilities, production line, testing lab and offices and also filled in on current operations and future plans. In fact, we (and you!) are the first to know about Jotuls newest woodstove - see this link or take the “lab” tour below for the breaking news.
