We are Yargus - Weldment Staff Highlight

Andrew Reed

Andrew Reed, welder for Yargus, started off with Yargus as a forklift operator and now welds for Yargus blend towers and various other pieces of equipment.

Andrew’s childhood desire to build things from parts into a finished product eventually evolved into an interest in welding.

Andrew has completed welding school, and enjoys welding at home as a hobby as well, where he creates functional welding art.  Andrew’s passion for welding is evident in the pride he shows in his work and the quality of his workmanship. 

Andrew’s first focus is always on safety, evident by his recent nomination for the Paul Masuga Safety Award, which is given out quarterly to the employee that demonstrates exemplary safety measures in all areas of their work.  Mackenzie Switzer, Production Control Scheduler, states “Andy is a great employee, he is a very hard worker and does his very best to make sure his work is done right.  He is also very active in 5S and making sure his area is clean and safe to work in.  I wish everyone in the shop had Andy’s attitude when it comes to safe and good quality work.“

Focus on Safety, Quality, Pride and a positive attitude are qualities that are valued here at Yargus.
