Welcome Ann Newell to Zumbrota Bearing & Gear. Ann accepted the positon of Controller in our Accounting department in June. In addition to learning her new position Ann has been working hard at learning the product. “ Being in the automotive industry is new to me. The parts and products are very much different than I’m used to”.

Before coming to Zumbrota, Ann was a Controller at an area manufacturing company for over 12 years. “Getting a better understanding of the inventory process for cores is something I really want to work through” says Ann. “Considering the amount of Cores we have on hand and developing a system of inventory control for the manual transmissions, transfer cases and front and rear differentials is key to making sure we know what we have on hand and what we need to find. It’s all very exciting”.

“The work environment here has been great. The guys on the lines are so knowledgeable and friendly that it’s making my education here seamless. I see remanufactured product being shipped that looks brand new and I’m proud to be a part of that”.

When away from work, Ann enjoys cooking and her two Yorkies Luna and Thor. She enjoys spending time scrapbooking her children’s schools year’s, laughing and enjoying all the great memories.
