The first time I heard about Friesens was during my second semester at college in Toronto. My relatives were living in Altona and had been working at the company for a couple of months. As my time at college was ending, their experience with Friesens encouraged me to see for myself what was so unique about this organization. Not many companies are around for that long these days and after this time within the company, I can understand the reasons for their success.

Friesens is a place where I can be creative, innovative, a team player and also a leader. Friesens is a place where you are constantly learning from others as well as sharing your knowledge. As a Packaging Specialist in think4D, I have had the opportunity to connect with so many wonderful people, ranging from our team of designers, operators, production staff, dispatchers, to our suppliers and of course customers from all over the world. And if that was not exciting enough, I am fortunate to say that my job allows me to use my ability to speak Spanish daily. As an immigrant, it makes me so proud to use this skill to contribute to my company’s success.

I am thankful that I belong to this powerful community of employee-owners, and look forward to creating and providing high quality products and services for our customers in the future.

I joined Friesens in September 2008 working in production, and since 2013 I’ve been working in administration. I’ve enjoyed learning the Friesens business, which includes a relentless pursuit of continuous improvement, training opportunities, and working with the great people that make Friesens successful. Employee-ownership is a well-known business model to get staff more engaged with their company and their performance – an accomplishment that has worked well for many decades. This is truly a great team of people to work with!

As a 35 year employee-owner at Friesens, I am proud of Friesens commitment to our customers, our employee-owners, our suppliers and our community.  Friesens is a company that allows for growth from within while looking outward to build a world class company.  I began my career out of high school working on a press and have been able to advance within Friesens to a senior manager position.  Friesens has provided an opportunity for me and many others to build rewarding careers while remaining in the community.   The relentless pursuit of improvement, innovation, and a vision for the future makes me proud to call Friesens my employer.
