Products Finishing 40 Under 40

Matt Wood Named to Products Finishing’s “40 Under 40” Class of 2024

We’re excited to announce that Matt Wood, TrinSoft’s Director of Dynamics,  has been named to Products Finishing’s 40 Under 40!  When asked why he loves the finishing industry, Matt said, “I love learning about each customer and making them more efficient through new technologies.” 

Matt’s responsibilities involve engaging with new customers, understanding their business needs, and modernizing their technology using PHTPlus. The inspiration for PHTPlus came from a local customer in the finishing industry who required an all-in-one ERP software solution. TrinSoft customized their software to meet this need, creating PHTPlus, which was well-received and marked the beginning of its market journey.

Matt recently highlighted three keys to success in the finishing industry: quality control, customer service, and embracing technology. These elements contribute to building a solid reputation, ensuring repeat customers, and achieving overall success. He also emphasized the importance of learning and mentorship in career advancement within the industry. Matt expressed his honor in being part of the “40 Under 40” group, attributing his achievements to the team at PHTPlus.
