Jay started his welding career back in 1989. He worked for one company for 26 years with the last 16 years serving as the superintendent. Jay earned what they call Gold Watch status for being a loyal employee for 25+ years.
Then, Jay and his family moved to Florida in 2015. He worked as a superintendent for a major bridge company in Tampa that make steel girder and draw bridges for the highways of Florida. Missing custom fabrication, he returned to the custom industrial world and worked as superintendent of a company doing the same line of work.
When the opportunity to join an organization that has such an honorable background arose, he was delighted to accept the Fabrication Manager role with Springer-Peterson. He noticed that the organization treats employees, family, and the community with respect. He says he found a great opportunity here and looks forward to being part of it.

There’s nobody like Kenny! 30 years and counting. He is forthright about how grateful he is to the Springer-Peterson family for giving him this career opportunity of a lifetime. He can’t say enough good things about this amazing family that he’s had the honor to work for over the years.
Rewind to September 1990. It marked his first month at the company when he began in roofing as a helper. He learned the industry inside and out. Working in various roles, he also was a sheet metal installer. Growing up working at the mines running heavy equipment, hard work is no stranger to Kenny.
It wasn’t long until his natural talents for custom fabrication came to the forefront and a master craftsmen was born. He’s spent the last twenty-eight years in the fabrication department that started out as just a small metal shop. He began by helping to weld and build things. As one always willing to learn new trades, he continued to grow & evolve. As the Fabrication Superintendent, he does the shop drawings for the team, orders the materials needed, and much more.
Outside of work, he gushes about his wife, LeeAnn. Together for almost 40 years and married for 30, LeeAnn is a special person. They were just strangers meeting in the most random of circumstances when Kenny helped get her car out of a ditch on I-75. And the rest is history. They are proud parents to two beagles, Rusty & Chip. In his leisure time, you can find Kenny dog sledding or out bowling with LeeAnn.
Kenny is not only a veteran Springer-Peterson employee but such a significant contributor to the success of our company throughout the years!
