May 2017 Employee Spotlight

For 125 years we have proudly been a family-owned company and now we want to share our Garfield family with you! On the first Friday of each month, we are now going to highlight one of our employees so you have the chance to get to know who is helping run the show at our refinery here in Philadelphia.

Our first employee spotlight is on Douglas Cummings, a member of our Marketing/IT department!

What is the best part about working at Garfield Refining Company?
In a word, my coworkers. I am surrounded by bright, vibrant individuals that help make working at Garfield fun. There is a real family atmosphere at Garfield and everyone is valued for the contribution that they make. My work is both challenging and diverse and I get to play in multiple arenas. I look forward to coming to work everyday!

What do you like to do outside of work?
My passion is all facets of woodworking, from building furniture, to case goods, to items turned on a lathe. I am a tool junkie of sorts and have invested a lot of time and energy in creating the perfect workshop. I am an avid boater and I love to read - particulary spy novels. I read a book every two weeks.

How long have you worked here?
I have been with Garfield for 12 years, but I haven't worked a single day. To borrow a quote from Confucius, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." I have been fortunate to have had two such jobs in my life.
