Darrell Simpson is a member of our production team, and we thought it’d be nice to share a little bit about what makes Darrell who he is. Induron’s Production Manager Mike Nelms noted that Darrell’s attention to detail and eagerness to learn the trade make him a valuable member of the Induron family.
“Darrell is very detail-oriented, which is critical in all phases of production to produce the consistent and quality products that we strive to deliver to our customers,” Nelms said. “Though Darrell has only been with us a little more than three years, he excelled in the packaging department and is now in the process of learning to manufacture our coatings by working with a couple of our most-experienced employees in the manufacturing deptartment. Darrell has learned well and is another valuable, ‘long-term’ Induron employee.
