He’s one of the longest-serving, brilliant PDC engineers, vital to the creation of big and small PDC solutions alike – from aseptic filling solutions to the Caring MR Suite® to UV-C. He’s (also) earned his stripes traveling to serve customers all over the U.S. – and even the world as far as China! And still, he is always available – even in the wee hours – to patiently help colleagues and customers alike. Plus, he’s always ready to trade pet stories and tasty hometown treats.
Having likely eagerly retired his traveling shoes (for the most part), today his expertise is in part focused on ensuring our projects are prepped, organized, on track and installed successfully. (He’s also a humble guy, so we have to brag for him!) Meet Mike, our fantastic Project Manager!
According to Blayne, Co-Chief Sales Officer, “Mike Slemin is a true asset to PDC. He is always professional, responsive, and dedicated to PDC and the customers we serve. Mike provides the sales team with great customer support in the pre-sales arena as well as Project Management post sales. He is always at the ready to provide accurate cut sheets, jump on a call, or provide a quote. Mike has also taken a key role in managing our Amico relationship, keeping Amico informed and providing information when needed. Mike has also been a champion in process improvement to help PDC run more efficiently with the quoting process.”
And according to Ryan, Service Department Lead, “Mike is a professional and his adaptability and versatility sets an example for others. Mike is an integral part of the business and is intertwined with many processes throughout the whole business. We owe a lot to Mike for laying the groundwork at PDC that we have all fallen into.”
