“Graco has provided me a great opportunity to grow in the manufacturing supply chain. Starting out in our accounts payables department, I learned how manufacturing activities impact other business segments. My role as inventory analyst gave me the opportunity to observe the flow of materials within manufacturing. Finally, as a product planner I direct the flow of materials through manufacturing.”
