New Operations Manager and Mechanic Join Team at KC Location
Growth at AT&S continues in 2014 as Operations Manager Robert Ray and Trailer Mechanic Nate Bailey begin work at the Kansas City location.
Operations Manager Robert Ray manages the daily logistics of the fleet, including
transportation and maintenance, and drivers and mechanics. Ray has been involved in the trailer and container industry for more than 20 years. What impressed him most about AT&S? “The friendly staffers are always willing to take the time to teach their system and listen to suggestions to improve efficiency and increase company profitability. It’s a good fit for me.”
Ray enjoys volunteering in his community. He is in his second term as a city councilman for Sugar Creek, Mo., and serves as the logistics chairman for the Sugar Creek Slavic Festival. Recently, Ray and his wife were recognized with the Truman Heartland Award for Citizens of the Year. In his free time, Ray enjoys spending weekends at the family house at the Lake of the Ozarks, gardening and working on home improvement projects.
Trailer Mechanic Nate Bailey, who began his career in mechanics studying aviation, found he enjoyed the tractor-trailer industry more and made it his focus.He has worked at multinational corporations such as Wal-Mart but found AT&S through social media, and the match of his talents and the AT&S culture has been a good fit.
“It’s a nice change to personally know the owners,” said Bailey. “Your work is recognized on all levels, from the supervisors, to the managers, and on to the owners. It’s important to me.”
In his free time, Bailey enjoys singing, playing basketball and spending time with his children.
