“Galvan is a growing, family-owned, family-oriented company with a successful history going back more than 60 years” Kristi says. “Our growth creates opportunities for employees, and even though the work in the plant is hard, we approach it as a team. It’s part of our company culture. We work together to keep a positive, friendly environment where everyone can succeed.”

Away from work, as a mother of three, Kristi’s focus is family time, which often means soccer games and practices. Go Team!
