Barbie Poitras
Shipping Supervisor
Volk Packaging Corporation

Biddeford, ME

“My biggest accomplishment at Volk Packaging Corporation has been applying my knowledge and ability to learn all aspects of corrugated manufacturing operations. I am proud to be a supervisor of our Shipping/Receiving Department and I take pride in servicing our customers, the 'Bread and Butter' of our business.'"

Barbie is considered the “rock” at Volk Packaging, an instrumental resource behind winning the prestigious Governor’s Award for Business Excellence in 2012.  She has been with Volk Packaging for 33 years, and has worked in virtually every aspect of the production facility.  She began her career with the company while she was in high school, and challenged herself to learn all she could about the organization as she worked her way to the position she holds today.  She was one of the first recipients of the Benjamin Volk Award for Excellence, the highest honor given at the company, named for its founder.  

Barbie is an amazing worker and dedicated employee. She comes in whenever necessary, works as late as necessary and never complains.  She is a role model to younger employees, and appreciated by everyone with whom she works.
