Production Quality Control Manager
Kent’s remarkable acumen for preventing mistakes while promptly envisioning a solution led to his ascent from assembly and welding to overseeing all aspects of Production Quality Control for Spika Design & Manufacturing. A true craftsman with over 30-years experience in metal fabrication, Kent vets all welds and fittings individually in addition to performing various system tests to ensure functionality meets or exceeds Spika customer expectations.
A few years ago, Kent gained a partner in quality control. A wild feline discovered in the shop barn chose Kent for adoption and soon became “Barnie”, the official Spika cat. A kindred problem solver like Kent, Barnie humanely dispatches all unwelcomed vertebrates from Spika’s property. Barnie vacations at Kent’s house whenever the shop is closed for holidays.
An avid outdoorsman, Kent came to Montana by way of Nevada and Arizona. Whether hunting or fishing, you’ll only find Kent where you won’t find a crowd. When not outdoors, Kent crafts antler art from the collection of sheds he’s amassed while hiking and hunting.
