A Day in the Life: Rabbie Currens (Production Manager-Radwell North Carolina)

My name is Rabbie Currens and I am the Production Manager of Radwell International Greensboro North Carolina. My primary job function is to manage production. Part of that is to show that we’re shipping quality products out to our customers. In order to do that we have to help the technicians to be successful. In order for us to meet customer satisfaction, we work with Engineering to make sure we have the right assets that we can use to test out the units. At the end of the day you have a paying customer so you want that customer to be satisfied with the product we’re sending out the door. My job is essentially to make sure that all these things are accomplished.

I’m from Liberia originally, West Africa. I’ve been in the U.S. for about 15 years now. I’ve been working with Radwell for 5 years now. I started off in New Jersey as a Repair Technician and quickly moved up the ladder.

My favorite part of the day is chatting with my employees during morning roll call and letting them know what we need to accomplish during the day along with reviewing our goals and objectives. I also walk around and say hi to everybody in the building. That’s my favorite part asking people how their day was yesterday, what they’re looking to accomplish today, and just basically trying to get the mood of the employees.

What drives me to be the best is the challenges that we have and trying to find some kind of resolutions to these challenges. That drives me to be the best. I love to solve problems so that kind of drives me to get better as a manager. One of the other things that really drives me to improve myself as a manager is that people lean on me for guidance. I would say that’s a key thing to basically solve problems and to be able to work with employees. I work with customers to solve their problems as well and that’s also what drives me to be better as a manager.

 I’m always busy throughout the day but I’m usually busiest during the morning hours. Sometimes I’m busy later in the day because I don’t have time to accomplish some of the things that need to get done during the morning and afternoon hours.  

What I like most about my job is the fact that I can do what I went to school for. To be honest, I never thought I would be in the position where I would be managing people but that’s something I’ll always like. I’m a leader so I like to be someone who can help with answers. Whenever one of our customers has a line going down or a rush repair, we have to come up with quick solutions so we have to make quick decisions. My favorite part of my job is that I get to make the final call.

The 3 words that best describe Rabbie Currens are energetic, ambitious, and outgoing. I’m also easy to get along with.

Things that I like to do outside of work are catching up with sports and I love to work out. I’m a big fan of staying healthy so I work out at least 4 to 5 times a week. I used to be a personal trainer and I’m always in the gym.

And that’s a day in the life of a Production Manager at Radwell in Greensboro, North Carolina.

A Day in the Life: Paul Fashaw (Logistics Breakdown Specialist)

Blog Transcribed from Video by Ryan Neuman for Radwell International

 

My name is Paul Fashaw and I’m a Logistics Breakdown Specialist. I am assigned to ensure that the orders that our company receives from their vendors are accurate and that they match their purchase order. I also need to make sure that the material that we receive is in good condition and acceptable. 

How did you develop your work ethic?

My work ethic developed as a child. I started a job at 9 years old as  an order boy at Acme markets. At the of 21, in 1954, I entered the military and served for four years before I was honorably discharged in 1958. At that time,  I started in the workforce as a computer operator.  I continued to work in that capacity in the data processing field for 55 years. After I retired I began working  at Radwell International. I’ve been here 13 years and I continued to use my work ethic at Radwell as a Breakdown Specialist. I need to ensure that all the orders and materials that the company receives are according to our specifications.  It’s very interesting and I enjoy my work.

One Thing Leads to Another: A Customer Success Story

Sometimes one phone call can make all the difference. This  story begins because of a service call placed on October 10th, 2017 by Siemens Healthcare in Plainfield, Indiana to the team at Radwell International in Franklin, Indiana. 

Siemens contacted Radwell for a service call because they had parts that could not be repaired by their regular vendor. Matthew Hartwell and Eric Dupont of Radwell International's Indiana location went to that service call and Eric worked on the part for about 30 minutes and was able to repair it.  Eric then worked on the second part  with the same impressive results.  Siemens people checked and verified everything was working as they wanted, and they were amazed that Eric had diagnosed and repaired everything in such a short amount of time. Even the techs on site were blown away that Eric was able to get it working again.

Five Reasons to Use Modular Design Enclosures

"

When choosing a cabinet to house controls or other equipment, users have two fundamental choices: a unibody (unitary) design, which is formed by folding and welding sheet metal into a suitable shape; and a modular design, where the basic structure is created by an internal frame with an external skin attached to it. While there might not be a major difference on the surface, differences may favor modular enclosures for plant-floor operations. Five benefits are highlighted.
