GETTING TO KNOW Parts Room
As the name implies, the Parts Room handles a lot of parts…8,500 of them in inventory to be exact. No doubt that is a lot of parts to keep track of, order, inventory and distribute and the Parts Room staff does a great job of doing just that. In a typical day, there will be between 50 – 70 calls from Maintenance needing a part supplied by the Parts Room. However, there is so much more to the responsibilities in the Parts Room than just parts. They ship and receive UPS and Fed Ex packages, change countless numbers of knife blades, restock the production tape and hand wrap cart, repair Bartelt clips and bag beater motors, clean glue nozzles, repair motors, rebuild gear boxes and in general make many other devices used in production work again when they need some attention. Items on the make list are drop cords, air hoses, top seal teflons and wired sucker cups. They even answer the phone when we the switch board operator isn’t here, monitor the employee entrance door and let the plant know when bad weather is about to hit. Many thanks go out to the three individuals who make up the Parts Room team that do so much every day to keep the lines running and the doors open at Crest.
