Meet Derek Dunn! - Kent Elastomer Products

Meet Derek Dunn!

Meet Derek Dunn, currently an Extrusion Operator at our Mogadore facility. Derek has been with KEP for three years, and over that time he’s worked a handful of other positions such as a Tender (general labor), a Utility Operator, and a Custom Dip Operator all at our Kent facility. Regardless of location, he always gives 100%. Derek is constantly willing to learn more and often encourages his colleagues to do the same. He is known for utilizing the knowledge around him, always being quick to ask his supervisor for clarification. 

When Derek is not at work, you can probably find him working out, camping, or playing video games. We are thankful for his hard work and dedication to KEP!
