Ron was hired as our purchasing manager at the Delaware City Plant in 1997 and is part of the 20+ year club at Kuehne. Ron served our country in the Navy for 6 years during stressful times at the peak of the Cold War and then post his military career worked in various purchasing positions for 25 years before coming to Kuehne. Ron is a valuable member of our team and is responsible for all purchasing and receiving activities at the plant. As part of his many purchasing activities he manages all import and export activities, raw material ordering and delivery logistics which includes monitoring the storage conditions of the salt piles at the Port, contract management, and is involved in contractor prequalification. Over the years, he has worked very hard with vendors to process invoices in a timely manner to reduce payment terms and eliminate late charges. He is also highly interested in safety, has been a member of our safety committee for over 10 years, and has recently embraced 5S and is one of our 5S champions. Ron has a passion to do what’s right for Kuehne and we are proud he is part of our team.
When asking Justin what he thought of Kuehne he stated:
“Kuehne is truly committed to their employees and customers alike, and it can be felt in our day to day operation. I look forward to picking up where our recently retired Transportation Supervisor left off, while also enhancing upon safety, our trucking operations and service to the customer as new opportunities present themselves.
Most of all, I’m privileged to be working with such a dedicated group of drivers. Safety to them is second nature and they are all extremely knowledgeable in their trade. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of their team.”
When Justin is not running day to day operations for the Transportation Department, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially his daughter and working with the Youth Ministry through his church.
