Kyle started at PMPA technical member Tsugami/Rem Sales about 10 years ago as a shipping/receiving/inventory clerk. During that tenure he learned the inventory systems, shipping systems, and how to interact with people of all different personalities and management levels. Kyle embraced all aspects of customer service in this position, routinely going above and beyond to make sure customers were delivered the correct parts, on time, every time. “Kyle had, and continues to have a ‘can do’ attitude,” says his nominator, Tsugami/Rem Sales brand manager Ashley Dombrowski.

As the business continued to grow, Kyle began managing two parts coordinators daily, taking responsibility for approximately $7 million worth of parts inventory and expanding his role in order fulfillment and customer service.

Kyle has also worked with both the finance and information technology groups to streamline order processing and inventory management methods. He is a self-starter, often seeing a need for an improvement or change, researching the best methods to accomplish this, reviewing with upper management, and then implementing it. He continually absorbs new knowledge of the service and parts aspect of the business and accepts the new tasks associated with them.

“He has earned the respect of every individual from the ownership of the corporation, our machine builder in Japan, and everyone in the corporation on down through the ranks. He is customer oriented and will do whatever it takes to ensure customer satisfaction,” his nominator adds. “Kyle has a bright future ahead and is a true emerging leader in our company.”

    The concept was to allow young professionals currently working in our industry to share their own personal journeys and thereby help educate a future generation of workers about the fulfilling, lucrative career opportunities available in mold manufacturing. We thought the best way to convey these stories would be through a video, so we sought support from key moldmaking organizations to help this idea come to life.

    In this multi-part series of articles, contributor Ryan Pohl, a journeyman CNC machinist who also holds a master's degree in industrial training and development, addresses the skilled-labor shortage and its potential to dramatically hinder the future sustainability and growth of the moldmaking industry.

  • Seeing the Industry with a New Perspective

    Last week I attended Plastec West in Anaheim, California (what a nice break from frigid temps in Chicago!). It was my first trade show as senior editor of MoldMaking Technology versus attending as a public relations manager for plastics industry suppliers, and I enjoyed seeing everything with a new perspective.
