This month we are excited to celebrate and honor Bob Bingaman for his presence at Kalas. Upon meeting Bob Bingaman, nearly right away you notice his bright spirit and love for his work shining through. Bob currently works out of Plant 2 in Denver, PA on 1st shift as the operator for Trailer Twisted Cable. If you were to visit him, he would excitedly show you around the impressive machines he is skilled in operating, genuinely pointing out all of the captivating aspects of his daily work.

This year, Bob will reach his 41st service anniversary at Kalas. Over his notable history here, he’s had the opportunity to work various roles making him a highly skilled and familiar face around our organization. To name a few, Bob previously worked in engineered cable products as a hand molder then injection molder. He’s worked in shipping, spooling and even worked as a compound mixer before technology evolved. Putting it lightly, Bob’s seen and experienced a lot here. So much so, that if you were to ask him for a favorite memory he’d say he has too many to choose! He’s grateful for the abundance of memories with so many people over his years.

Over Bob’s 41 years a lot has changed. Plants opening, positions changing, and the biggest changes he’d seen including all of the modernization to computers through the years for so many things. Now getting to work out of plant 2, Bob still gets to see change. He has the opportunity to work on the creation of many types of wire and in that he sees enjoyment. Variety, large space to move around and people to work with are all seen as perks for him. We hope you can tell by reading his story that Bob is a man of positivity and skill and we are grateful to call him our own.

Please join us in thanking Bob for his hardwork, loyalty and life he continues to share with us with each passing day!
