Shop Employee of the Month (Night Shift) – February 2017
Feb 17, 2017

Johnny Muruato

In manufacturing, meeting a shop’s daily averages is paramount to a company’s productivity standards. But to some people, simply meeting the averages is not enough; they want to exceed them.

That’s Johnny Muruato in a nutshell.

“Whatever the daily averages, he sets goals to improve them,” says processing/assembly department manager Steve Center. “But he will never place quantity before quality.”

In fact, in terms of quality Johnny always has one question in mind, says Center: “What will the customer think?”

Johnny, who started in February 2016, is always willing take on new challenges, learn new skills, bounce ideas off management, and put in extra hours if necessary.

“This guy is very dedicated to his work and puts plenty of time into it,” Center says. “And, really, he can play any position on the field.”

Congratulations to Johnny Muruato, Western Window Systems’ night shop employee of the month for February.
