The Marcom Field Trip

  • 2021 College Interns
  • Growing up, the most exciting days in school were when you were told that you were going on a field trip. About two weeks ago, I received an email from Jingya that she, Angela, and I would be going on a facility signage audit to our Rome and Lincoln Ave facilities. I didn’t really know what to expect from the visits, but I was excited for the “field trip” to explore more of Indium Corporation.

    Before we began our trip, we stopped quickly for lunch at Panera Bread; my grilled cheese and soup were quite delicious in case you were wondering! After lunch, we made our way to Rome. Up until this point, I had only been to our Business Park Drive and Robinson Road facilities for short visits. This was going to be my first real tour of one of our production facilities. Bill Jackson, Senior Director and General Manager of Compounds, met us at the Rome facility and we began our audit. We started by looking at some of the conference rooms around the facility and brainstorming what signage could enhance the rooms. We continued to venture around the facility, identifying those areas that needed updated or new signage.  If I am being completely honest, I was shocked by the sheer size of the building and the number of amazing things that were happening there! Being an intern that works in HQ, I only see so much of the groundbreaking things that are taking place every day in our facilities. You can definitely tell we are preparing for an outstanding future ahead of us here at Indium Corporation.

    Following our audit of the Rome facility, we drove to Lincoln Ave where we would be finishing our “field trip”. Lincoln Ave is our oldest location and is still online today. There are a lot of incredible innovations and renovations happening there that will continue to help drive Indium Corporation’s success. I am so excited to continue to watch Indium Corporation grow even after the completion of my internship.

    Bill: I just want to thank you so much for showing me the awesome projects and progress happening at our different facilities. It’s not every day that an intern at a large company like Indium Corporation feels as included as I did that day.

    Until Next Time My Friend,
