Where did you work prior to Taber; same industry or something totally different?
Prior to working at Taber, I was working with the State with the Mississippi Department of Human Services. The working space environment was similar, but this was totally different from what I do here at Taber. My primary responsibility with MDHS was to provide available resources and services for Mississippians that could sustain families.
When you’re not at work, what would we find you doing?
When I’m not at work, I am spending time with my children. I have (2), a daughter (17) and a son (8). I love to fish for catfish. I love to workout, or go for bike rides. My son keeps me active. My daughter is a movie buff, so when it’s time to wind down, you can find us on the couch binge watching movies, or shopping.
I was born and raised in Saginaw, Mi. I joined the U.S Navy immediately after high school, where my MOS was a cook. I have been stationed in Sigonella, Italy, Okinawa, Japan, and few shore duties. I am not a fan of the snow or the cold, which is why Mississippi has been home for almost 20 years now.
Favorite part about working for Taber so far?
What I enjoy best from working here at Taber, is that no one is a stranger. Everyone that you meet becomes friend, and that friend becomes family.
In my opinion, that is what the backbone of an organization builds on, people that you can trust and depend on to get the job done.
What sets Taber apart from other companies that deliver the exact same things?
Our outstanding teamwork, our customer service, and our ability to provide our customers with exactly what they are looking for.
Taber is growing rapidly. Any advice for those looking to join the Taber team?
For those looking to join the team I would say, come ready and with an open mind to experience the dynamic of what teamwork stands for. When we work together is when we can be effective and efficient to the best of our ability. Every member, department must be able to count on one another in order to get the job done safely and correctly.
More About Taber Extrusions:
Founded in 1973, Taber Extrusions originally pioneered a process for extruding rectangular billet which enables the company to extrude solid profiles up to 31 inches wide or hollows up to 29 inches. Taber expanded with the purchase of an extrusion facility in Gulfport, MS, in 1995 which houses a new state-of-the-art cast house and two additional presses, microextrusion capabilities, and the fabrication area has been expanded multiple times.
Taber continues to extrude billet in a wide range of alloys and sizes and has diversified its markets beyond military since its inception to include aerospace, automotive, marine, infrastructure, and sporting goods, among many others. For these markets, the company supplies cast and extruded products in a variety of soft and hard alloys.
Today, Taber Extrusions has completed the addition of in-house friction stir welding capabilities, and carries on their offering of extruded aluminum components, value-added machining services, and raw material supply to the North American market – making them a vertically integrated supplier of FSW panels and assemblies never before seen in North America.
