Eric Rundquist, Processing Coordinator for Infra-Metals New Boston, began working as a Saw Operator at our company in 2014. Eric’s prior experience in the medical field offered him a unique perspective going forward in his new career.
Career Growth at Infra-Metals
Eric, like many employees at Infra-Metals, has held several roles throughout his career. Starting as a Saw Operator, Eric learned the production and logistics side of the business. Being new to the New Boston, Ohio area, Eric was mentored by management, allowing him to grow into his new position at the newly opened facility.
With a new facility comes new challenges. He started working at Infra-Metals only months after the facility was first opened and watched it grow and expand daily.
“It is gratifying to see your fellow colleagues’ flourish.”
Moving from production to traffic coordinator offered yet another challenge in the form of logistics. Creating and managing the inbound deliveries and outbound shipments furthered Eric’s education and offered a new perspective on the inner workings of a steel service center.
Current Day-to-Day of Processing Coordinator
In his current role of processing coordinator, Eric puts together processing schedules for all the machinery on the production floor. Managing machinery in this type of environment requires problem solving and instituting new procedures. Eric has been able to adapt and evolve into his role seamlessly and has become and integral part of our daily operation.
“I really enjoy getting to work with a variety of people in different roles and responsibilities, from sales and management to shop floor and everything in between. It is never mundane or monotonous, rather exciting, high energy and everyday is different with its own challenges.”
Eric’s career goals looking to the future: “My goals and aspirations are centered around continuous improvement. I look to move through the ranks to the highest position I can attain and continue to play a larger role in the success of company.”
