We do what others can’t or won’t – That’s what drives our innovation.
It is all about doing what’s necessary to exceed customers’ expectations. I must be always available, making sure the equipment in the plant is running and reliable. Also, keeping an eye on quality, making sure the operators have tools and training to put a good quality product out the door in a timely fashion.
