Yazoo Mills continues to see growth and is expanding its Maintenance department with the hiring of Don Parks as Maintenance Supervisor.
Parks joins Yazoo Mills following a Maintenance Planner/Lead role at a local Agribusiness. His background in hydraulics, robotics, programming, planning, and electrical troubleshooting provides him the skillsets needed to expand the servicing of production machines further to minimize downtime. Parks will collaborate with his team and other equipment/facility maintenance departments and focus on implementing improvements to position Yazoo as the industry leader in manufacturing paper tubes and cores.
When asked why he applied to Yazoo, he replied “I applied to Yazoo because I knew the company would open up opportunities to me that I did not think would be open any time soon at my former employer. Yazoo always strives for more in every aspect – with its employees, customers, and facilities. They truly are a great company to work for!”
In his spare time, you can find Don spending time with his wife and four kids, watching his kids play baseball and softball, listening to audiobooks, learning to play new instruments, fishing, hiking, and playing video games with his kids.
A few fun facts about Parks:
• Can play guitar, piano, and bass and is learning to play the drums
• Attended college as a music major but dropped out because he couldn’t get over stage fright
• Makes his own arrows and shoots a recurve bow without sights
Welcome to the team, Don! We are excited to watch you hit the ground running and bring new, innovative ideas to our Maintenance department.
