“Receiving this recognition was an honor. I appreciate highlighting the contribution women make in the manufacturing world, and especially in southwest Virginia.” – Heidi Shupe
For 22 years, Heidi Shupe has been making a positive impact on her company, from assisting in the development of AutoCad drawing of new and existing tools to leading the site to achieving significantly reduced injuries leading to the company receiving OSHA’s highest honor of VPP STAR status and SVAM’s Excellence in Safety Award. She is said to be tireless, detail oriented, extremely well organized, and never misses a deadline or commitment. Her greatest impact on her fellow employees is in ensuring that they have one of the safest places to work.
