August’s employee spotlight features Bonnie Munoz, EPI-HAB’s assistant manager:
Bonnie joined the EPI-HAB team in 1979 as a temporary employee and has thankfully never left! Her skills were apparent from the very start. When given a project, she’ll find the best way to get it done. Bonnie’s successfully accomplished every production, customer service and planning job in the plant. And through her commitment to quality and customer service, she has worked her way up in the company, recently being promoted to assistant manager.
“I stay because what we do makes a difference in the community, and the people we help make a difference in my life,” Bonnie says.
As EPI-HAB’s assistant manager, Bonnie is an expert in developing quotes for projects, customer service, billing, conducting inventories and ordering supplies.
