Keith Wengerd directs our Winesburg operations which processes, inspects, packages and assembles our products. He offers customers assistance with building and improving their assembled products processes and leads the lean initiative at the Winesburg facility. A team member since 1995, and KEP’s Assembly and Packing expert, Keith helps to offer cost-effective packing methods or to simplify assembly of customers’ products that use KEP components. “My best day at work is when I get the opportunity to work with customers to develop new assemblies and products,” he said.

Keith is excited about the new business opportunities that are in process – the new automation equipment that is being installed and the expansion of the Winesburg facility. He strongly believes in planning and doing things right the first time and is a great advocate of using lean manufacturing fundamentals – working smarter, not harder. In his personal time, Keith loves to join his family hiking and exploring the great outdoors and supporting his kids in their school sports activities.

Thank you for your dedication to our team, Keith. It’s been a great working with you for over two decades and counting!
