Making a Difference | 5 Years

Our employees are what make Northern Engraving and our customers successful. They reflect our core values of Trust, Respect, Innovation, Service and Teamwork every day. It is their hard work and dedication to excellence that make a difference. One person who displays these values is Michael Goede, Inspector and Punch Press Operator at the Sparta, WI location.

Stable Work Flow

Michael appreciates the way work assignments are given at the start of every shift.

M Goede blog2.jpg“I can base what I am doing each day on where my work station is. It is nice to have stability in my job and the work comes at an even pace down the line. I am interested in learning more about automation and how the lines get set up for each job.

My favorite process that Northern Engraving offers is diamond cut. It is amazing how different the metal can look with this cutting technique.

As part of the Sparta plant’s Employee Engagement Team, I am looking forward to learning ways the plant  can become more energy efficient.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my family and  work with pottery on our plot of land up north near Thorp, WI. We work off the grid and participate in a Wisconsin DNR program for selective forestry.”
