A Printpack Associate Spotlight Series
For over a decade, Brian Eitemiller has been busy helping Printpack provide value to our customers. Since joining the company, he has held four different roles that have allowed him to increase his knowledge and expand his responsibilities at our Prescott Valley, AZ plant.
Brian used to work for a kitchen cabinet company; after the housing market crashed, he was looking for a fresh start and a job where he could grow in the future. He heard from friends that Printpack was a great organization and was hiring, so he decided to apply.
Today, Brian is a Quality Specialist and a jack of all trades. He is also the Plant Sanitarian, the Trial Coordinator, the Learning Coordinator, and the Plant Management Representative.
Brian consistently goes beyond the ordinary. Let’s learn more about his career journey in his own words.
