Employee Spotlight: Allen Timmons

by Guest Blogger


In Focus is sitting down with Quanex employees who exhibit exemplary service to our customers. This month’s spotlight is on Allen Timmons, maintenance coordinator, Cambridge, Ohio.

IF: How long have you been at Quanex?
Allen: 7½ years.

IF: What is your role?

Allen: Prepandemic, I helped with maintenance organization and purchasing. I also coordinated the outside cleaning company, as well as our facility’s landscaping and snow removal. I am still handling all of this, but in the last 4–6 weeks, I have been heavily focused on COVID-19 supplies and related changes.

I have kept not only our plant in Cambridge stocked, but also 13 other Quanex facilities with hand sanitizer, wipes, gloves, masks and, of course, toilet paper. I have overseen donations of excess supplies to hospitals and first responders in the Cambridge area. I have also been a part of helping set up our areas to promote social distancing.

IF: Why is safety so important to you?

Allen: So I—along with my co-workers—can safely go home every night to our families.

IF: What’s your favorite part of your job?

Allen: It is fun to be challenged to save the company money without sacrificing quality.

IF: How are you involved in the community outside of work?

Allen: I am the president of the local chapter of The Sons & Daughters of the Army/Navy. Some of the activities we do include providing a free breakfast to local first responders and veterans one Saturday per month. The public is also invited for a small charge. The money raised is used to build ramps for our disabled veterans.
