Reynolds Promoted to Shipping Supervisor

Andrew Reynolds, Shipping Supervisor at Yazoo

Yazoo Mills is excited to announce the promotion of Andrew Reynolds to Shipping Supervisor. Reynolds began his career at Yazoo twelve years ago as a winding operator and has held several key roles which include Winding Floater and Shipping Lead.

In his new role, Reynolds oversees the shipping department across all three shifts at our New Oxford, PA plant. He ensures the day-to-day operations run smoothly and efficiently which helps Yazoo maintain the fastest turnaround times in the industry. When asked what he likes most about working at Yazoo, he replied, “I like the small town, family atmosphere at Yazoo. It is nice that the company shows appreciation for the workers through lunches and holiday parties.”

Reynolds attended East Stroudsburg University and graduated in 2008 with his bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. He gained several years of classroom experience as a substitute teacher in a very competitive job market but stepped away from that career path to find a more permanent income. He was referred to Yazoo by a friend of his, which has provided him with a steady income job, great benefits, and the opportunity to grow within the company.

In his free time, Reynolds likes to work in his garden. It brings him the greatest joy to teach his children how to plant and grow their own food. We also thought it would be fun to ask him some fun questions to get to know him a little bit better. See what he had to say!

What’s something you’ve always wanted to try or learn?
“I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar.”

If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be?
“I would like to go to Alaska.”

If you could pick any superpower, what would it be and why?
“I would choose to be able to stop/slow down time so my children don’t grow up too fast.”

Congratulations on your promotion, Andrew! We’re excited to have you as part of our talented team and look forward to watching you continue to lead our shipping team to success.
