Employee of the Month: Phil Kjeldgaard

Congratulations Phil Kjeldgaard on being the Employee Of The Month for March 2022!


Phil is truly a star CNC operator and employee. There seems to be nothing that will stop him from figuring out a challenge. Whether it is with set up’s or just troubleshooting he will do whatever it takes to come up with a solution. There are few jobs that make him struggle but even with those jobs, Phil always strives to do better than the last. Doesn’t matter if the job is a difficult or routine job, he is always improving his work while also improving the machines so his fellow employees can run more efficiently. Phil’s adaptability cannot be understated.

Although Phil is fairly quiet, he never hesitates to help anyone who asks or needs it and always leaves a detailed description of everything he does. Phil is efficient on every machine in his department. It’s so helpful to have someone who can take over setups during shift changes or even reprogram machines. We are so grateful to have a star like Phil on our team.
