When you've been in business as long as we have, you have a wealth of stories and learnings to share, as well as a team of people who are dedicated to doing things right. We'd like you to hear from a few of them.
Meet Matthew White
- Foreman, Transformer Rewind
- 43 years at Jenkins
- Lead department trainer
- Army & Navy veteran
"At Jenkins, we don't take shortcuts. We got one way to do it: the Jenkins way. The Jenkins warranty is longer than any other company: 18 months. When you put quality work in, we usually don't get transformers back. When you manufacture a product, you feel good about your work because you know what you put in it. The Jenkins family sends you to school and shows you how to do it versus telling you how to do it. This company is all about learning."
Meet Tommy Concha
- 46 years at Jenkins
- Trains others on motor winding & data collection
- Army veteran
"I work on autotransformers and reactors, and teardown, wind and reassemble motors. I've been 'retired' from Jenkins for the past three years, but still come in three days a week. The quality here is the best, we use better products. The job training is better here, too. I would know—I've trained other folks at Jenkins on motor winding and taking data myself."
Meet Josh Shaver
- Lead Field Technician, Test & Control Systems
- Second-generation at Jenkins
- Avid Braves fan
"My grandfather worked at Jenkins for 40 years. So, I guess this place is in my blood. I now work on failure analysis on industrial control circuits, being able to understand existing circuits and where they need to be
corrected to alleviate a problem. I take those skills to the field, as Jenkins primary tech for on-site commissioning and service on Electric Motor Test systems."
Meet Steve Huitt
- Lead DC Motor Winder
- 40 years at Jenkins
- Technical lead on elevator projects
- Proud donkey owner
"I'm a winder at Jenkins and have been for about four decades now. My expertise is in DC motors, which has translated to working on-site for a number of elevator-related projects. I also mentor and train new winders that come to Jenkins. I'm known to crack a joke or two. Whether or not they're funny is another story."
Meet Miguel Mejia
- Lead Winder
- 11 years at Jenkins
- Project lead for on-site rewinds
- Skilled at root-cause failure analysis
"We see quite a few large projects come to Jenkins, some through our doors and some that take us on-site. I work as the lead on-site winder, specifically in power generation. I also train inexperienced winders. I've been told that I'm a guy who's an expert at tackling things we've never done before and figuring it out. I like to develop new ways of doing things."
Meet Larry Ruemmler
- Master Machinist
- 16 years at Jenkins
- 40 years in the industry
- Harley-Davidson enthusiast
"I've worked in every role in electromechanical repair and serve as a trusted, lead mentor for manual machinists at Jenkins. After 40 years in the industry and the last 16 years at Jenkins, I decided to 'retire'.
But much like other 'retired' Jenkins staff, I still find myself coming in three days a week."
