Colehouse Advances to Supervisor at Yazoo

Tim Colehouse, Recut Supervisor at Yazoo Mills

Yazoo Mills is pleased to announce the promotion of Tim Colehouse to Recut Supervisor in New Oxford, PA. In this role, he is responsible for the management of the recutting team at the New Oxford plant, scheduling workloads, and ordering essential parts for the department. 

“Tim’s passion for learning, quality assurance, and problem-solving has been clear since day one,” said Jesse Smith, Plant Manager. “His eagerness to learn newly adopted technology and apply modern improvement methods have been instrumental in our continued success as the leader in manufacturing paper tubes and cores.” 

Colehouse started his career at Yazoo Mills in May 1997 as a 3″ automatic machine setup person. Through on-the-job training, he began to advance into key roles by learning to set up all machines within the recut department. As he continued to expand his knowledge on the production floor, Colehouse also boosted his management skills by attending a Dale Carnegie class, an elevated leadership course, and safety courses with CPR training. All this has helped pave the way toward promotions to positions of Floater, Lead, and into his Supervisor role.
