Worked the night shift for the last 2 years.Main duties were to get products from the warehouse using picklists printed out from protean,then more recently saps computor systems.

Logistics Manager (Former Employee), Hudson, OH – December 29, 2013
Days average 10 hours. Began with meeting with manufacturing/ distribution and production planning to review daily plan. I learned to be highly alert to all operational issues and flexible in changing departmental priorities to meet customer demand. All my coworkers new their jobs well and worked well to do what it took to get thing done. Hardest part – more... of the job was dealing with late inbound material deliveries and having freight carriers meet customer delivery times. The most enjoyable was the open door style management had with all employees and at the end of the day we got things done. – less

EKA Chemicals division focuses on bleaching chemicals & colloidal silica.
Customer Focus Engineeer (Former Employee), Marietta, GA – September 9, 2013
Pros: good benefits, interesting people and travel opportunities.
Eka Division of Akzo provodes a good living. Eka has high focus on low cost production. The culture is Euro/Canadian-centric, generally with high-quality and with pleasant demeanor.
Colloidal silica production mostly goes largely to the paper industry with also a lucrative niche supplying to suppliers to the electronics industry. The high EOL quality – more... standards needed for the electronics industry contrast with wider EOL production windows for less sensitive industries. Electronics customers need more attention.
Worldwide production and distribution of P&P and colloidal silica products allows for travel to interesting places for the appropriate personnel. – less
