Misty Rogers
Manager, ESS Systems, ESS - North America

“When I watched my first pouring of product I was hooked. It was amazing to watch how our product comes to be. It starts with a concept, then the design and on to the actual manufacturing of the item. I like starting from nothing and watching a project take shape.”
