1964年,林登·约翰逊(Lyndon Johnson)担任美国总统,30美分可以买一加仑汽油,克利夫兰·布朗(Cleveland Browns)是NFL冠军,勒罗伊·奥特(Leroy Ott)在“美国自动公司”(U.S.Automatic Corporation)开始了他的职业生涯,后来成为诺森公司(Nordson Corporation)。二氧化氯

Leroy joined the team as a drill press operator. He was just 20 years old and had no high school degree.

"Bob Kropf Sr. hired me and took a chance on me. He died 10 years ago. I was standing outside the church at his funeral and his grandson came up and asked how I knew his grandpa. I told him, your grandpa gave me a chance at life. He hired me with no education and I have a beautiful life because of your grandpa," said Leroy.

多年来,Leroy从钻孔区转到了铣削部门,现在是一名机械师领导和CNC程序员。

“我喜欢我的工作是和人打交道and programming equipment," said Leroy. "Everything has to be perfect when you program. If not, you can do a $20,000 mistake just like that, or get hurt. The adrenaline is flowing and when it's all done, it's like winning the Super Bowl. Every day."

"It makes my job easy working with a guy like Leroy because of his knowledge, his dedication to the job and his willingness to be here, no matter what," said Leroy's supervisor, Jayson Leavelle. "He's always willing to solve a problem, and he goes out of his way to do it. If something is running smoothly, he thinks there's got to be a way for it to be running even smoother."

勒罗伊在诺森期间经历了个人悲剧,他把帮助他向前迈进归功于诺德和同事们的支持。

"In 1972, I lost my son to a brain tumor. When I came back, Evan and Eric Nord were at the gate waiting for me. They offered to help with the medical bills. I never asked for any help, but somehow, we didn't have many medical bills. If I had a wish, I wish the family knew how much they helped me over the years," said Leroy.

As the machines got more complex, Leroy took an interest and taught himself to code. Today, nine machines at our Amherst facility run on his programming.

"If you want to accomplish a lot, just do it," said Leroy.

杰森评论道:“实际上,我们在这个部门所做的工作,一半是由勒罗伊和一位工程师开发的。整个模具系统、机器的布局方式以及制造零件的程序都是由勒罗伊编写、制造、设计、存储和维护了30多年的。”

Leroy recently celebrated his 75th生日,但他没有退休的打算。

"I love it," said Leroy. "I love what I'm doing. It's fun to work. It's challenging to work. I have the best job here at Nordson. I want to work as long as I can. As long as I have something of value to add to the company, I want to work."
