Vigon Upgrades Manufacturing Equipment

In the month of July, the Vigon maintenance team finished a new Reaction Flavors center in the production facility.  This renovation included the installation of new flavor manufacturing equipment as well as the modification of existing vessel systems.

These new changes will maximize Vigon's manufacturing capacity, and provide increased flexibility for the Production & Planning teams.

Vigon is looking forward to the new options and efficiency these improvements will bring to our team and our customers.

Tell us a little bit about your background?

I grew up near the Finger Lakes, NY and went to Penn State to Major in Food Science. I had previously worked for Nestle (Quality and Sensory), Kibbles n Bits/Meow Mix (Food Safety), and Frito Lay (Production) before starting employment at Vigon 5 years ago. At Vigon I worked as the Food Safety Team Leader for 3 years before moving over to commercial in my current purchasing role.  I currently live in the Poconos with my wife (Serena) and our furbaby Greyhound (Duma).

What do you like best about your job?

It's been a fun 5 years working with both the manufacturing and administration parts of the business. There have been a lot of memorable moments from swabbing the powder room and doing DC allergen label checks to working with our new suppliers and negotiating deals. In general, the people and memories have always been the best part.

How do you spend your free time outside of work?

I spend a lot of my free time working on my next DIY house project or completing my self-imposed workout of the day in the basement. But, when football season rolls around you will most likely see me glued to the TV with my favorite beverage in hand. Serena and I always have a new trip that needs to be planned and we hope to visit Yosemite National Park and the Amazon Rain forest within the next couple years.
