Employee Spotlight: Troy Yeager
Cardinal Scale recognizes Troy Yeager for his 41 years of persistent hard work. Troy started working at Cardinal Scale directly out of high school, starting on April 11, 1979 (Troy graduated at mid-term). Troy has worked in multiple departments during his 41-year tenure with Cardinal Scale and currently works as Machine Shop’s Second Shift Lead/CNC Operator. He has worked under three different Cardinal Scale presidents: W.H. Perry, David Perry, and now Matt Stovern.
Troy started work at Cardinal Scale as a janitor, moved to assembly in the Truck Scale Department, and worked his way up to a lead position in the Truck Scale Department on multiple shifts. Four years ago, Troy was transferred to the Machine Shop to oversee Second Shift and work as a CNC operator.
Troy primarily spends most of his shift producing digital load cell bodies that are used in ARMOR digital truck scales. Machine Shop is responsible for meeting load cell production, and making sure industrial scales have a ready supply of load cells to match completed truck, floor, and livestock scales. Troy thinks his easy-going demeanor is what has helped him keep a steady pace in Machine Shop and manage a wide array of personalities that work under him.
Cardinal Scale’s Machine Shop produces load cells and smaller metal components that are used in larger scales. These products are meticulously developed and produced in high volume to meet the high demand of industrial scales that are shipped out of the company’s Truck Scale facility. Troy helps make sure these invaluable machined parts are always in steady supply.
Troy likes to spend time off work with his wife and three children. When time permits, he enjoys going boating on Table Rock Lake on the weekends, and manages his rental properties that he owns.
