What is your biggest accomplishment at Mid-Cape so far? In 1989 I became the buyer for the window product line. I was given the pleasure of working with a great crew in Building 4. After 15 years we outgrew Building 4 and moved the line to the White’s Path facility in South Yarmouth. I stayed in South Dennis to work in other areas.
What is something working at Mid-Cape has taught you? To listen and learn from your customers and coworkers.
So far, what has been your favorite memory at Mid-Cape? The 15 years in windows. The crew I worked with was awesome. It was like running a small business inside a bigger business. Between ordering, inventorying, making windows for customers to pick up, and deliveries, it was fun. I still have customers come to me looking for window information. I try to tell them if they need to replace or order more windows, the Marvin/Integrity window is a great option. My current Building 4 job is a close second.
