What do you call a dedicated employee and expert machinist, who is also a husband, father, first responder, and a volunteer assistant-fire chief? At HE&M Saw, we call this a Phred Spodnick. When it comes to complex machining, on our largest Bridge CNC machine, Phred is the HE&M Saw “go-to” machinist. Phred has been with HE&M Saw for 12 years and has been CNC machining for over 20 years. Phred is also an EMT and helped set up the emergency medical response processes at our machining facility. He is the resident first responder for any medical issues at HE&M Saw. He enjoys his job, because of its challenges, which include machining unique components such as saw arms and tabletops, as part of the larger custom saws we offer at HE&M Saw. Phred’s work motto is “Do Your Best, Everyday”.
Phred’s high school sweetheart/ wife, Tonya, works in HE&M Saw’s electrical department and together they have two boys. In his free time, Phred enjoys being outdoors, hunting, fishing, and camping. While on a camping trip, he even saved the family once from a pack of hungry raccoons!
Dedicated, determined, and diligent. This is how Phred’s coworkers describe him and we couldn’t agree more!
At HE&M Saw we appreciate your commitment and dependability! Keep up the great work!
