Sioux Rubber & Urethane Employee Spotlight: Dan Sitzmann, Assistant Supervisor
Since he first started working for Sioux Rubber & Urethane in 2011, Dan Sitzmann has seen a lot of changes, both in the company and in the industry in general. “Adding urethane to the line-up was a game changer,” said Sitzmann, who now serves as an Assistant Supervisor for the Sioux City-based manufacturer and fabricator. “It really opened up what we could offer our customers while reducing the turnaround time.”
Like anyone who loves his job, Sitzmann knows there is more to Sioux Rubber & Urethane than most people know. “We take pride in our work,” he said. “We make every attempt to get projects done ahead of schedule so that our customers understand how important they are.” The company currently supports local, regional, and global agricultural, packaging, and transportation industries with products that protect, cushion, and seal.
Sitzmann has worked on about every product in the plant and attributes his success within the company to hard work and doing things right, and the same can be said for how Sioux Rubber & Urethane operates as a whole. “We all get along and work well together,” he adds. “We’re like family.”
Sitzmann, a Le Mars native, has lived in Siouxland his entire life. “My family is here. My friends are here. My roots are here,” he says. “It doesn’t get much better than that.”
