What is your job title?

Purchasing Coordinator

Describe your role within the company:

I buy just about all the components that are needed for the printing and packing of our products here in the Kenosha Plant. I also keep the inventories up to date.

Describe your typical day (tasks, challenges, etc.)

I make sure all materials were issued to each job, every morning. Then I plan on what is needed to purchase for upcoming jobs. The biggest challenge, is keeping the inventory correct. I do not want anyone to come to my office to tell me something is missing. With help of everybody here, we have gotten pretty good at keeping the inventory accurate.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I love working with the people here, they are great. I hate to sound cliché, but it is like one big family here.
