Employee Spotlight: December 2020



Brad Burton, Shift Lead

Shop Coatings Division


What are your favorite hobbies?

I enjoy smoking meat and hanging with my friends.

Before working at Nix, what was the most unusual or interesting job you ever had?

Hanging steel for football stadiums.

What is your favorite thing about working at Nix Companies?

Everyone gets along and has fun.

Do you have any children?

Yes, I have two daughters - one is 10 and the other is 12. 

What has been your favorite project you've worked on at Nix?

We made a roller rack for barrels for a well-known bourbon company.  

Tell us a funny or embarrassing story while you were at work?

One time a co-worker was sick one day.  Our boss text him to see if he'd be in the next day.  The co-worker said "yes" so our boss replied with "10-4" (as in "sounds good"). 6:00 AM rolls around and the co-worker hasn't showed up.  Turns out, he thought 10-4 meant he was working from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.  It's still a running joke within the Shop Coatings Division everyday.
