Behind the Conveyor – Team Spotlight
Dorner has become a global brand in conveyor automation – and that’s all thanks to our team. In this blog series, we highlighted talented professionals whose dedication and passion are making a positive impact on your conveyor systems. These are the faces behind the brand who are helping to transform conveyor automation … and having fun doing it!
For Leo V., a conveyor applications specialist, every day is different, and every application is unique. Leo joined Dorner almost 14 years ago in the customer service department and offered a helping hand wherever it was needed, eventually working his way into the applications department as a quote author.
“We all wear many different hats,” Leo said. It’s important to be flexible and do what is needed to provide the best service to customers. Whether that means spending the entire day walking customers through configuring a custom conveyor to get it ready for engineering or providing fast quotes to meet another customer’s important deadlines.
When asked what is one of the most rewarding parts of being a conveyor applications specialist, Leo said “working with customers on quotes and seeing that order coming in. It means that solution worked for the customer.” He is always excited to be able to go out onto the shop floor to see systems that he quoted being built and making a tangible difference in a customer’s business.
“The manufacturing industry has been a big part of helping and providing solutions to this ever-changing world.” The pandemic really opened everyone’s eyes to how important automation can be in manufacturing, and Leo’s excitement is renewed every day just by seeing what new technologies are developing and how Dorner is helping businesses sprint toward the future.
