HONOLULU (AP) – Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. has hired Anna Skrobecki to be the company’s senior vice president for factory and power plant operations. HC&S General Manager Christopher Benjamin said in a statement that Skrobecki has extensive experience in industrial processing plants.
Benjamin said this will help the sugar plantation as it researches alternative processing methods for biofuels.
The Navy and U.S. Department of Energy earlier this year announced they would spend several million dollars researching biofuel production at HC&S’ sugar cane fields on Maui. Skrobecki most recently was operations vice president at Wausau Paper in Wisconsin.
She also worked for Weyerhaeuser and James River Corp.

Ms. Skrobecki–Please make growing sugar on Maui profitable so it doesn’t disappear like Pineapple on did Lanai or like the 2 other sugar companies did on Maui. Maui Nui needs agriculture!
