Women's History Month - Women in Manufacturing Spotlight: Somie Mossell
 

Question: How did your career start in the cable industry?

Answer:  I started at Lake Cable in 2000 as an Inside Sales Rep and like many good things, it happened completely by accident. I was looking for a summer job after college and I had a friend who was working at Lake Cable. She introduced me to the company and the industry and the rest, as they say, is history.

Question: How did your career start in the cable industry?

Answer:  No big story there. I was looking for a new job and the employment agency sent me for an interview at Lake Cable. The recruiter said the owner was a great guy and if she were looking for a job, she would want to work at Lake Cable. The thing I remember most about the interview was how excited Bill Runzel was about making wire and cable and how proud he was of the company he was building. Lake Cable was pretty small back then. Everyone wore many hats and it didn’t take long to get exposure to all the different parts of the business.

Question: How did your career start in the cable industry?

Answer: In 2005 I was a single mother of three young children looking for a job close to home. At the time I was commuting to a job 40 minutes from home for little pay and not very challenging. I heard from a friend, who heard from a friend, that Lake Cable had opened up in Valparaiso 10 minutes from my home.  The pursuit began. I was relentless! I think I finally got an interview just to get me off their doorstep! And so the adventure began!

Thermoplastic vs. Thermoset: What’s The Difference
What's the primary characteristic that makes thermoplastic different from thermoset?

Thermoplastic is a polymer that turns into a liquid or gel when you heat it and ultimately hardens to a solid state. If you want to re-melt it or remold it, it's no problem because thermoplastic is very easy to manipulate.
