Menges Roller’s engineering estimator and purchasing manager Veronica Singh has been nominated by The Manufacturing Institute for the Women in Manufacturing STEP Award.
Science Technology Engineering & Production Award nominees will be honored in Washington DC at a large ceremony on Feb 6.
The STEP Awards honor women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in the manufacturing industry, from the factory-floor to the C suite. Veronica Singh, who has been with the Menges Roller since 2001, is the engineering estimator and purchasing manager, and has developed a strong reputation for being an expert in several key areas.
Singh doesn’t just understand and negotiate pricing, but she has also has a thorough understanding of the physical and metallurgic properties of each type of material used to make Menges’s line of rollers.
Matt Menges, president of Menges Roller, says, “Veronica is truly unbelievable. She is rock solid, and it’s not often that one sees a woman in machining, let alone manufacturing. You don’t question Veronica – there’s no need to – she has either researched the topic or experienced it. She will always make the correct decision.”
“Growing up I never dreamed that manufacturing was in my future, and yet the essence of heavy industry from my home-town must have leeched into my bones. Seeing the potential of manufacturing, its adaptability in times of change never ceases to amaze and inspire me,” says Singh.
“(Singh) knows laminating processes better than most engineers. She’ll take your best design and make it better," adds Menges. "Mrs. Singh is a respected member of the Menges Roller Team, a company leader and a source of knowledge for peers and customers. Veronica Singh is not just a female working in a man’s world – she's a leader in her industry, regardless of her gender.”
