We would like to extend a warm welcome to Jen Warner who joins our front office staff as Yazoo’s Receptionist.

Warner has a long history of working in customer service and making sure that customers are taken care of. Her background includes working for United Airlines handling calls for travel agents and as well as their international desk. And more recently, she worked for the corporate travel industry for 25 years. During her tenure in the travel industry, she learned how to become a pro multi-tasker as it is very fast paced and lots of changes and moving parts happening.

In need of a change, Warner decided to apply at Yazoo not only because of her background in customer service but because she has always heard great things about family-owned business. She knew instantly, it would be a great fit for her. In her current role as Receptionist, she handles answering the phones and transferring them to the correct party, pricing orders accordingly by order size, price piece, etc. and handles the online stock mailing tube orders that come in through our website and various other channels.

What does she like best about working at Yazoo? “Everyone is wonderful to work with. The family atmosphere is great – you’re not treated like a number, rather a person that they get to know and appreciate. Yazoo is very gracious to their employees and I’m fortunate to work here.”

In her spare time, you can find her spending time with her husband and kids (ages 22 and 17), chasing her two English Springer Spaniel’s around, whipping up new recipes and cheering on the Denver Broncos and New York Rangers.

A few fun facts about Jen:
• Her very first flight was an economy seat from Newark, NJ to London on Virgin Atlantic
• She loves all things crime and murder mysteries
• Lived for playing softball and basketball as a kid

Welcome to the team, Jen! We are happy to have you and your cheerful personality on our team!

   

Quality is a word we are all very familiar with. A word that can prove many different meanings and be portrayed in many different fashions. Companies leverage their marketing efforts around the word ‘quality’ but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a part of their actual process. Today’s world is filled with endless varieties of products available with many companies vying for your money, so you may be wondering whether or not quality still matters and the answer is… YES, 100% YES.

We don’t just talk about quality here at Yazoo. We live, breathe and manufacture it. We have a reputation for high-quality products that are manufactured to each customer’s specifications. Our highly-skilled team works together, day in and day out, to find innovative ways to manufacture our products more efficiently, while maintaining a top-notch level of quality.

Regardless of what industry you’re in, customers aren’t going to choose you solely based on price but rather on quality. Consumers expect Yazoo to deliver on our promise of manufacturing high-quality paper tubes and cores and as a team, we always exceed that expectation. We provide a high-level of confidence with every order that leaves our manufacturing floor.

Managing quality effectively is a crucial part to being a successful business. That’s just one reason why Yazoo has remained an industry leader for over 119 years.

     

We are pleased to announce the hiring of Judy Rang as our new Human Resources Director.

Prior to coming to Yazoo, Judy worked for a business solutions provider in Cockeysville, MD as an HR manager, previously owned an HR consulting firm and is a certified HR professional. With her roots planted in PA, she was eager to find a job near her hometown. Our family-owned business that is well respected nationwide really grabbed her attention and ultimately led to her applying for the position.

As our Human Resources Director, Judy is responsible for planning, directing and coordinating the administrative functions related to employment and safety. As our company is continuing to grow, she has already been busy at work coordinating recruiting efforts to find the right leaders that will help take our company to the next level in manufacturing. What does she like most about Yazoo? She says “The people, everyone is friendly and so willing to step in and help.”

In her spare time, you can find her spending time with her husband and three sons (29, 22, and 17), enjoying the great outdoors, traveling to the beach, being a “baseball Mom” and being a health coach that helps individuals meet (as well as exceed) their health and wellness goals. Her husband just bought a Harley so she is looking forward to warmer weather and a lot of Sunday drives.

Welcome aboard, Judy! We are thrilled to have you on our team and can’t wait to watch you excel in your new role!
