Our Queen of Quality

Meet Melanie Pope, a Custom Dip Inspector who has been with KEP for 33 years! In her previous years with us, she has worked in many areas including Stripline, Bulk, and Assembly. In her current position, she spends her days closely inspecting various parts to ensure our customers only get the best of the best. 

A good day at work for Melanie is one where she receives good products with no scrap and can complete orders on time. She also takes any opportunity she can get to help someone out and brighten their day.

When she’s not at work, you will probably find Melanie spending time with her fiance, listening to music, gardening, or playing with her spoiled cats, Milo and Clyde!
