Meet Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson has been a team member at Kent Elastomer Products since 2006. He has recently been promoted to the 3rd shift supervisor’s position after years of hard work and dedication. Willie has worked in almost every department in both Mogadore and Kent facilities.

Willie grew up in Ravenna, Ohio and currently resides in Akron with his wife and two daughters. He enjoys music, horror movies and collecting Incredible Hulk memorabilia. Willie also enjoys working out regularly.

“I’ve learned a lot from co-workers and managers over the years and I appreciate the great team we’ve got at Kent Elastomer Products,” said Willie. “I think having a close connection with your coworkers makes for a more productive workplace.”

Willie says he’s excited to start his new position and hopes to help the company grow to its full potential. We are excited, too!

Thank you for your dedication over the last 12 years on our team, Willie!
