2. What drew you to GMP originally? And how long have you worked at GMP?
GMP was a local company that was hiring when I got out of high school in 1973. Not having a clue what I wanted to do, I applied and got an assembler’s job (at $3 /hour) with a newly purchased GMP company call Adams Equipment Company. Located in a separate building about 3 miles away from the GMP factory, I worked there for about 10 years until they consolidated into one location. Doing the math, I’ll be here 48 years as of this September.
3. What is your favorite part about working for GMP? / What has been your favorite project so far?
For me, every day is an adventure. As one co-employee asks me what my hobby project is going to be for the day.
No favorites, I like them all.
