Jerry was a student at Oregon Technical Institute and became a machinist after he graduated—an industry he’s now worked in for many years. He initially came to the company as a contract worker through a temp agency, but wound up becoming a member of the Acumed Team.
Jerry starts his day early—getting to work around 5 AM to warm up the Swiss screw machines. Once they’re ready to go, Jerry produces some parts, measuring them to make sure they meet the proper specifications. He then gets to work on producing screw cells while troubleshooting and performing maintenance projects on the equipment. He ends his day by making sure to communicate any issues to the co-worker taking over the next shift.
