Robert West lives by words taught to him by his father – Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
“I try to be like my father who has excellent work ethics. Is honest and hardworking,” he said.
If you were to ask his co-workers at Ledwell East in North Carlina, they would say the same thing about Robert, who started working at Ledwell almost seven years ago.
He has performed many duties over the years from working in the shop to purchasing. Robert currently oversees the Parts Department in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
“Helping customers solve issues is the most challenging, but most rewarding part of my day,” he said.
One of his most memorable projects has been organizing a parts pallet rack system to help with efficiency in the shop.
Working in industrial supply and specialty feeds prepared Robert for his current position.
“Ledwell has been the most interesting and fun job. I have learned so much with the new technology with our Smart Feed Trailers and updating equipment,” Robert said. “I’ve had great teachers over the years and look up to them.”
Robert and his wife, Jackie, have two sons – one of whom works in the shop at Ledwell East. His favorite pastime is fishing. When he isn’t fishing you might find him playing guitar or target shooting.
