Josh Harstine recently became our newest supervisor at our Winesburg facility! Before being promoted to this role, Josh worked as a line coach, backup maintenance tech and a material handler. Josh embraces the challenge of helping to lead KEP into the future and guide his team to best use their talents and achieve their professional goals.

Josh’s best day at work? “Having opportunities to help and also learn from my team.” During his time away from work, Josh spends his time cheering on his three children, who are active in cheer, basketball, soccer, cross country, football, T-ball, and the up-and-coming sport of competitive hopscotch! Josh also enjoys cooking, watching the Buckeyes and Steelers, and dirt track racing.
