Our CEO Kathie Leonard has become used to the comments she hears as a woman in manufacturing, including, “Is this your father’s business?” But she has learned to use her strengths in running Auburn Manufacturing, including a love of customer service and an affinity for business. Having a good sense of humor helps, too!
This profile in the Fall 2018 “Stuff Made in Maine” issue of MaineBiz highlights more of Kathie’s approach to the business she co-founded in 1979.
Another story in the issue profiles our company, including career opportunities, our internship program, and approach toward sustainability. For customers who want to learn more about our team, check out the great photo of our Maintenance/Machine Operator Jakob Matson!
We hope you enjoy this issue of MaineBiz.
