Warehouse Additions: Javier Garduno & Lucas Glazik

The two newest team members of the warehouse team at our Kankakee branch are “sure to be part of the strong foundation of Gordon Electric Supply,” said Dave Brza, Warehouse Manager. Javier Garduno joined the Gordon team in late March while Lucas Glazik joined shortly after in early April. Both men bring previous forklift experience in warehouse settings.

“Javier has a willingness to get involved and get the job done while Lucas is eager to take on new challenges,” said Dave Brza, adding that their “teamwork first mentality is refreshing to our warehouse staff, and we feel ready for the challenges coming our way.”

Lucas comes to Gordon with an associate’s degree in chemistry from Kankakee Community College while Javier has previously worked in inventory management.

We look forward to seeing the Gordon team grow!
