Uniquely Equipped: Q&A with Production Planner Angie Sheehan
Growth at Gray continues to be the norm. As new relationships are formed with customers and new projects are brought into the fold, Gray is constantly looking at innovative ways to expand our team to effectively meet the challenges. Over the years, part of the plan has included acquisitions which add endorsed brands that are uniquely equipped to help continue that growth. We spoke with Angie Sheehan, production planner with Anderson Dahlen Inc., a Gray company, about joining the Gray family, her normal workday, and the uniqueness Anderson Dahlen brings to the table.
Describe your normal workday–your “day in the life.”
“I work remotely at the beginning of each day, early in the morning, by getting the production schedule ready before heading into the office. This includes working with project managers to get the orders in for the customer’s requested dates. I also monitor the load vs. capacity for each work center, and I make sure we are releasing the right amount of work to the floor to keep the shop running smoothly.”
What do you enjoy most about your work?
“Since the day I started here, I have always enjoyed the people. Whether we’re discussing work or life, it seems like we listen to each other.”
What has been your most memorable experience since being a part of the Gray Family?
“It’s been a memorable experience watching how the company has grown so quickly.”
What’s the most valuable advice you’ve ever been given?
“Don’t jump to conclusions or assume anything.”
What do you think sets Gray apart from other service providers in the industry?
“The dedication to the quality of our work sets Gray apart.”
In one word or phrase, how would you describe Gray?
What unique capabilities does Anderson Dahlen, Inc. provide, and how do they complement Gray’s overall service offering?
“Since Anderson Dahlen, as well as some of the other Gray endorsed brands, work with customers in the Food & Beverage industry, Anderson Dahlen is able to provide the equipment expertise Gray’s customers need.”
If someone was visiting Minnesota, what would you recommend to them as a “must-do?” (Restaurant, activity, sightseeing, etc.)
“The Mall of America is a great place for shopping. It has a great indoor theme park for the kids. If that’s not your thing, a trip up to Duluth is a good place to visit, along with a scenic drive along the North Shore of Lake Superior.”
