As we get closer to the new year we would like to take a moment to thank a few of our GK employees that go above and beyond to not only make GK a better place but the community. Though all of our employees are cause for recognition we would like to applaud those who have made an impression through the community in 2017.
From food drives to fun runs and more, Julie has been a driving force at General Kinematics for getting others involved. When there is an upcoming event that needs participants you can count on seeing posters, emails, and flyers all around GK due to Julie’s wonderful inclusive spirit.
Randy volunteers at grade schools, teaching students about S.T.E.M. fields. Randy has an incredible wealth of knowledge he is incredibly generous with. Always ready to teach, Randy also teaches maintenance departments how to better maintain and understand their equipment.
