Gary Merrill

Production Manager

Gary Merrill started with Eastwind Diamond Abrasives in January 2014 as a part time maintenance person to oversee the building and machinery. Within one month Gary was offered a full time position to continue doing what he was hired to do, but also to start learning more about the machinery and how to operate them. Over the next year Gary was involved in all aspects of Eastwind Diamond and was promoted to Production Manager of our industrial line in 2016.

Working for Eastwind has been fascinating and keeps me busy going from one machine to another as the orders dictate. When I look back after being here for 6 years, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
