“I was presented with an opportunity to work for CPS back in 2004 by an employee that I had previously worked with. CPS was a young company at the time and I wasn’t thinking about a long term career path.
As I learned about CPS, their services, and the systems used in the manufacturing process I focused on learning all that I could and strived to meet all of the expectations now asked of me. It was rewarding to me to see the result of my effort. I could manage the technology in front of me, produce quality products and meet the customer’s expectations. I also found that my efforts were also beneficial to my coworkers. I was a resource that could guide them to meeting their expectations. As I gained additional experience and consistently met the challenges that were placed before me I was provided with additional opportunities. I helped commission a new piece of equipment, I wrote the operating instructions, and provided training to new personnel. I ultimately accepted responsibility for the daily operations for a small segment of the manufacturing operations at the corporate site.
After a few years in this role and toward the end of 2011 I was provided another opportunity to manage all operations of a sister plant in East Greenville, where I am working today. This is a completely different operation in regards to equipment, environment, and personnel. It was and has been a challenge in many aspects but through dedication, perseverance and self-motivation I have made a positive impact that I can be proud of.”
