Apollo is pleased to celebrate six work anniversaries this month, including two from our sister company AVID Labs®.

Even though Nick Burchell has been with Avid for 3 years, he has only really spent about 1.5 of those with us. Besides the excellent job he does for AVID Labs®, he also works for the National Guard and has spent the other half of his time learning how to fly H60 helicopters. We are proud of Nick for serving our country and appreciate his ability and work ethic when tackling AVID projects.

Zachary Howard came to us from the aerospace industry a year ago and has been learning the unique challenges associated with a customer-driven design process. He has been very busy with design work on tight time frames. We appreciate his willingness to dive in and contribute to our customer’s success.

We are lucky to have Alissa Knepple as our receptionist. We still believe in having a person answer the phone and front door, and she is the perfect person for this. Her personality shines through in her interactions with our customers.

Josie Marchetti has taken on quite a challenge in her department. She started as a printer/laser operator and has quickly become a leader with her excellent organizational skills and work ethic. We are appreciative of her willingness to take on more responsibilities, always with a smile and a positive attitude toward both internal and outside customers.

We could not ask for a better IT Specialist than Dane Nagy. He is excellent at research and finding logical solutions to complex problems. He is willing to collaborate with others for the best outcomes to benefit both the company and the customer.

David Strauss provides exceptional attention to detail and has incredible knowledge of the inner workings of our products and how they are used. He is a stickler for quality and troubleshoots problems easily. He quickly grasps new product assembly and directs his team on technique and processes for producing high-quality products efficiently.
