Marceline Press Lead Kenny Schmitt loves seeing new technology in the pressroom
Written by Danielle Finch
Pressroom – Marceline, Missouri
At Walsworth, I used to be a Press Helper and Four-Color Press Operator. I am currently the Pressroom Lead.
In my day-to-day work, I move workflow from CTP to press to schedule the workload for our presses. I also order press consumables and do ink testing and mixing as needed.
I have worked at Walsworth since March 31, 1982. I was introduced to the industry because my dad worked at Walsworth.
I think the coolest thing I get to do at work is seeing new technology.
If I had a personalized coffee mug at work, it would say “Easy to get along with”
I like coming to work every day because it keeps me going and keeps me young.
A fun fact about me is I used to be an EMT.
I have my wife, five kids and two grandkids in my family. When I’m not at work, I love hunting, fishing and playing with our grandkids.
If it wasn’t for Walsworth, this community would not be here.
I give back to my community through my involvement with the local Fire Department.
A favorite memory I have working at Walsworth is that my signature is in a book that supposedly ended up in the White House.
