Employee Spotlight | Rena Erickson

Making a Difference | 40 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 Rena Erickson at our Corporate Office in Sparta, WI.

Good Friends and Good Company

Being part of a close-net team is one of the benefits Rena Erickson finds working here. She has made good friends which she considers to be like family. Over the last forty years Rena has worked in the Sparta, WI production plant as oven tender, assembler and she was instrumental in setting up the Quality crib area for the Appliance lines before transitioning to her current position in the Corporate Office working with our Appliance customers and sales team on the Customer Service desk. We appreciate her knowledge and experience.

It is important to remember to ask questions and let people who have already put in the time help you. We are all part of the team and need to work together.

In my spare time I like to read and spend time with my grand children. I also enjoy watching local youth sports and activities.”
