My name is Kobey Juergens and I am an Improvement Facilitator at Gerdau. I have been with Gerdau for 14 years where I have worn many hats. I have worked in production as a Melt Shop Slide Gate and in the Bar Mill as a roller and pulpit operator. I then moved into the Management Systems department where I was involved in rolling out and training the entire plant on different business tools including Process Analysis, Business Definitions, Routine Analysis, Failure Analysis and 5S coordination. I am currently in the Logistics department as an Improvement Facilitator where I am in charge of project coordination and management of all Improvement projects for the department. I stay involved in the community by serving on the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Mentors Care Board of directors. I am married to a beautiful woman and have 2 wonderful boys, who as any parent knows are both a challenge and a blessing all at the same time. I grew up in Midlothian and am a proud member of the graduating class I 1987. I enjoy working in, serving in, and giving back to the community that I grew up in.
