Tyler Coan

Automation Technician, UPM Raflatac

“My interest in automation technician work I guess my upbringing,.. Growing up on a farm, working with my hands. I wanted to continue a trade where i got to work with my hands every day. My advice for someone wanting to get into a manufacturing job would be to understand that the sky is the limit.

I think it’s easy to get your foot in the door at one of these facilities, and, once you get your foot in the door, growth is exponential. I truly think you can go anywhere with a manufacturing job here in Henderson County. I think it’s important for young people, as well as older people who maybe interested in starting a career over again, to know that they can grow.”
