“Leading With a Positive Attitude

Employee Spotlight: Orlando Gonzales”

orlando_gonzalesAlways upbeat and happy, Orlando Gonzales is a member of the warehouse A-Team who’s’ positive attitude is contagious to those around him. Team lead on the Hendricks horizontal panel saw, Orlando is responsible for quality “cut-to-size” Corrugated, Agrilite™, Trusscore™, and Thermoclick™ panels. “The advantage of using the Hendricks saw to cut these types of polycarbonate and PVC panels lies in its ability to cut multiple panels at on time”, said Orlando. “A panel saw likes this must be properly maintained. Attention to blade skewing is a constant demand and adjustments must be made as quickly as possible to ensure a smooth, chip-free edge.”

Like everyone on the A-Team, Orlando is focused on finding ways to reduce costs and increase productivity. “It’s important to reduce product waste,” said Orlando. “Accurately calculating panel yields and constantly monitoring our drop inventory are two effective ways that I do this. By improving the efficiency of our warehouse operations, we can shorten customer lead times.”

At AmeriLux, we are continually working to improve our internal operations so that we may provide our customers with the best in quality, value, and service.
