Employee Spotlight: Chris

Behind every product there is someone behind the scenes managing all aspects of production. For our Adhesive Squares™ products, we’re lucky to have Chris fulfill this role. Chris manages the entire production operation for our industrial division. He has the integral job of ensuring each and every Adhesive Squares™ product is consistently manufactured at the highest quality. Whether it’s making changes to the equipment to increase production efficiency or developing a custom product for a new application, Chris is always thinking of new and innovative ways to meet the needs of our customers.

We got the chance to ask Chris a few questions and find out more about him:

What would you say is the most important aspect of your job? Quality. Giving the customer what they want to help improve their process.

What is one project that you are most proud of here at RS and why? Making our coater more efficient. It has helped improve line speeds, our quality is much better, and we are able to supply our customers with what they need.

What do you consider most challenging about your role? Every day is something different. Customers call with specific applications that we have to trial run and test for them to help them solve their problem and improve their process. This also allows us to learn and grow as well.

What do you consider most rewarding about your role? Knowing at the end of the day we have helped customers and fellow employees who depend us.

If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would it be and why? Billy Graham. I would love to be able to speak about Jesus Christ the way that he does.

What motivates you? Helping others. It truly makes me realize how fortunate that I really am and it keeps me humbled. We should never judge anyone because we don’t know what they have been through and we might be in the same place one day.

In three words, how would you describe yourself? Blessed, humbled, and funny.

What is your favorite movie? A River Runs Through It and Toy Story 1.

How do you like to spend your day off? I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family.

What’s the best part about working at RSI? It is a family environment founded on Christian faith. Everyone is always serving others.
