This month’s Employee Spotlight features Michael Beal, an operator at our Quincy plant. “Michael embraces our Core Value, One Team, One Dream, One Family, by gladly accepting whatever the day brings him. He is a hard worker and is happy to pivot from one role to another as needs arise at the plant,” says Kyle Venvertloh, General Manager. Since starting with the company, he has learned the ins and outs of the plastic sort line, safely rotating Gaylords of plastic or paper, and running our IPS baler. Kyle adds, “He’s always pleasant to be around and enjoys engaging with all team members with an attitude of “whatever the team needs today” and a smile.” Quincy’s Operation Manager, Lucie Spohr, describes him as “Everything I want in a teammate on the floor. He’s ambitious, respectful, and ready to tackle anything that comes his way. I am met with positivity each morning, and we end the day with immense appreciation and feelings of accomplishment. Michael loves this company and watching it grow so much that he recruits reliable employees to join our team.”
