Women In Manufacturing 2024 (2)

As we jump into the fourth segment of our Women in Manufacturing series at KPS Global, we are excited to spotlight a few of our incredible team members that are vital to the walk in cooler and freezer manufacturing operations. Each day this week, we have been introducing you to exceptional women from different plants, giving them the platform to share their personal journeys, experiences, and the pride they take in their work. Join us in recognizing these five special women from our Piney Flats manufacturing facility.

Beverley Walker – Assembler / Wood Shop

Beverley is a new addition to KPS Global, having only been with us for nine months, but her supervisor has only good things to say about her; “Beverley is very prompt, approachable, and consistent in her work. She learns quickly and is willing to do whatever the job calls for.”

Beverley has been learning to read blueprints in her time here and loves that everyone at KPS Global is kind. With so much new information to learn, she knows absorbing as much as possible is the best action to take to be successful.

Lori Hicks – Assembler, Sr / Door Shop

As one of our more established employees, Lori has been with KPS Global since 2009, fifteen years! She loves how friendly her co-workers are. Her decade and a half has garnered her a level of experience that allows her to be a valuable asset to our team, as she is able to perform in multiple areas of many company projects.

On her off days, Lori enjoys going outside to hike or go kayaking.

After seven years with KPS Global, Lorie has a handle on how we operate. As a manager, she believes true leadership means “making everyone else better!”
