Unfortunately, it is true. All good things must come to an end. It seems like just yesterday that Carissa Myers and Joseph Lacey started with Pentaflex as part of our 2015 summer internship program. We cannot thank them enough for being a part of our team for the summer and the fine job they did as interns.
Pentaflex, in conjunction with the Greater Springfield Career ConnectED was able to provide Carissa and Joseph with an opportunity to experience working in manufacturing.
Three days a week they worked with our Manufacturing Engineer on important programs such as 6s lean strategy, flowcharts during setup activities, time studies and preventive maintenance programs. These are important programs that every manufacturer deals with, but can be very time-consuming.
That is why it was so great to have Carissa and Joseph lend their eyes and ears to gathering data and analyzing it into a useful tool that we can use to improve our processes at Pentaflex. We are very proud of the work they have done and are happy to have provided them with real life experience before heading to their higher education of choice.
Carissa will be heading to Wright State and Joseph will be attending Bowling Green State University this fall. Pentaflex is grateful for their fine work and wish them both much success in their future endeavors.
