Congratulations to Doug Brennan for his 35 years of Service at NPS Metals a division of Owen Industries.  Doug is currently the Quality Manger for both NPS Metals and NPF Finishing.  He started his career running various machines from Press Brake, Flame Cutter, to Welding.  He then became a driver operating one of our semi-trucks to deliver parts to customers.  When NPS got their very first laser in 1996, Doug became the very first Laser Operator for the division at that time.  He ran the laser until 2002 when he moved into his current role as Quality Manager and has worked in that role since then.
