Colson Caster Corp., a manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, recently named Darlene Thompson as the company’s newest engineering assistant, where she will provide critical costing, routing and bill-of-materials and product sampling for Colson’s internal engineering group. The company also has added Faith Taylor to its sales and service staff to assume the full-time customer service representative position that Thompson vacated with her move.
“We are fortunate to be able to continue to train and motivate our staff members in order to allow them to expand their career choices with Colson,” says Don Laux, Colson’s president and general manager. “In addition, we are happy to say we are growing, even in these difficult times, and welcome the opportunity to add another qualified employee to our team.”
Thompson has been in Colson’s customer service group for more than five years and joined them with more than 14 years background in manufacturing and engineering support positions. A newcomer to Colson, Taylor brings more than 13 years of professional experience within the material handling industry and will be working with the company’s Mid-South regional sales representatives and customers. Both positions will be staffed from Colson’s headquarters offices in Jonesboro, Ark.
