Advanced Machine Operator Barb Holzem recently retired after 17 years of service with Kondex. Holzem’s career with Kondex began in 2005, and included a variety of roles in her tenure. In addition to machine operation, she’s done a lot of painting, assembly, and packaging work. She enjoyed working with machines at a steady pace, and is proud to hold a perfect attendance record and to have never been late. She attributes this to her parents teaching her to work for what she wanted – a characteristic that was noticed by management.
