WHY GRANEX
First, I respect the ownership. I believe in them and trust them. Second, I feel I have a duty to protect what Granex is, and where we’ve come from. It helps put things into proper perspective for others that aren’t that familiar with our history. And lastly, with a demanding and high-quality production facility, a large part of my responsibility as Manager is to keep the stress level down. My approach is to always come from a place of teaching others, instead of reprimanding them. It must be working because I’ll hear others jokingly say, “B-Pleasant,” in times of high stress.
