What I Like About Working at Whitcraft
We’re in a really nice location and there’s a wide diversity of people working here. I like interacting with a variety of people. They’re the top reason why I want to come back every day. Everyone here has a voice. Management listens and tries to do whatever they can, because they care about the people, not just the numbers. I also like the focus on continuous improvement.
About My Job
I’m a Lean Manufacturing Manager now. This is a fairly new position for me. I’ve been here five years and started working as a project engineer. I work in different departments to get rid of waste and make the process more efficient. I also manage all new products, including product design and material procurement. I’m involved from start to finish on any projects I’m assigned, which means I begin with the contract stage and stay with it right on through to shipping the product. This also means that I work with customers directly.
I like to home brew beer for friends and family. I have two little girls, one is three-and-a-half years old and one is seven months old.
