Since 2015, Wade has worked at MATHESON’s Waverly, NE location.
However, Wade’s journey with MATHESON began in the early 1990s, before MATHESON acquired Linweld. “I started at Linweld in 1994 and worked with cylinders and reconditioning in the cylinder distribution center. My tasks included retesting cylinders, putting new valves in, and repainting the cylinders. I also helped with loading and unloading the route trucks.”
Wade decided to make a career change and move from the cylinder distribution center to the warehouse. “Working at a large company, I had the opportunity to move into a different area and see a new side of the company.” After working as a warehouse associate, Wade was promoted to team leader.
In Wade’s current position, he plays a vital role in the supply chain management of our inventory. He is responsible for quality control of all orders, ensuring that the orders are processed accurately and shipped on time with all the appropriate paperwork. Wade is also responsible for maintaining all customer delivery records.
Wade thoroughly enjoys working with his fellow team members. “I work with many great people, and we make a great team. We have many things in common since many of us came from the cylinder distribution center, and we share a similar goal of doing our job promptly and efficiently.”
When Wade is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife, two kids, mother, and mother-in-law. Wade and his wife like traveling, especially to South Dakota. Wade states he is a “simple man with a simple life,” but his career at MATHESON has allowed him to grow and develop his confidence and workplace relationships.
