Neal Secker forms an important link in the supply chain for DDM Garage Doors to local customers, North America, and the world.
Neal serves Christ as warehouse manager at DDM. His primary responsibility is to oversee and participate in the daily operations of the warehouse, including inventory management, spring coning, product preparation, wrapping and packaging, and special crating projects. And with DDM’s growing product catalog, his job scope expands all the time.
Working in conjunction with Dan and Jean Musick, Jim and Andrew in technical sales, and Jane in New Markets, Neal readies double-digit package counts virtually every day for UPS and USPS—sometimes much more on Mondays. The work is hard—but Neal and his team are enthusiastic and up to the challenge.
Dave and Daryle are key shop members. Dave cuts the springs and prepares cable and other parts to required specifications throughout the day. When late afternoon rolls in, activity heats up in the warehouse. Items must be weighed, labeled and posted properly. Daryle comes in and helps the warehouse get all the shipments ready for pickup. All leave having completed a cache of packages overseen for quality control at every step, ready for the carriers’ pickups.
Dan Musick helped cast a special quality vision for Neal: “If this was easy everybody would be doing it.” And with every package, Neal has learned to apply this maxim. Products such as standard torsion springs, Torquemaster springs, extension springs, hardware, and rollers are heavy and hard, and do not naturally lend themselves to enclosure. But Neal and his team strive for balance in providing customers with the most economical shipments possible, while ensuring package safety.

With Neal at the helm, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31) becomes a reality every day in the warehouse, and the vision is catchy throughout the office.
What can Neal get ready for you?
