Baldwin Employees Honored with CLARCOR Achievement Awards

KEARNEY, Neb., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Two Baldwin Filters employees were recently presented the CLARCOR Achievement Award for outstanding achievement.

Craig Simmons and James Whitesel were recognized for their efforts on several projects at Baldwin Filters.

The CLARCOR Achievement Award is given to an individual employed by a CLARCOR company who has exhibited behavior that embodies the values and philosophies of CLARCOR.

Craig Simmons, Setup Specialist, was nominated for being a key resource in providing operational knowledge and insight in the equipment design and operation for the recently completed upgrade of spin-on filter lines in Baldwin's Kearney, NE, and Yankton, SD, facilities. 

"Simmons' leadership was evident throughout the process of specifying the equipment improvements before and during the equipment validation at the vendor locations and during the online installation," said Al Liibbe, Senior Manufacturing Engineer & Champion of Project.

James Whitesel, Production Supervisor, was recognized for his contributions related to a new can-making line and sensor plate work cell at Baldwin's Kearney, NE, plant and training support at the company's Morocco facility. 

"No one else in the facility has the knowledge and know how in all aspects of can making. He was instrumental in setting up the transfer program. He went back and forth with the vendor until he came up with an idea that would make the programming easier for everyone," said John Macrander, Senior Manufacturing Engineer on the can-making line project.

Both Simmons and Whitesel have been with Baldwin Filters for nearly 19 years.

Baldwin Filters, a CLARCOR company, produces over 6000 lube, air, fuel, hydraulic, coolant and transmission filtration products for most applications, and can be purchased from distributors worldwide. For information about Baldwin products and employment opportunities, visit our website at
