What three words would you use to describe Infomax?
They would have to be Family, Stability, and Growth. Family stands for the three generations of the same family owning the business and their commitment to their customers and their employees. As an employee of over 31 years, the bond that quickly forms between other coworkers is unlike anything that I have ever seen. People helping other people makes Infomax an enjoyable place to work, and that attitude is passed on to our customers. Stability – after 31 years, it speaks for its self. Through those years, Infomax has experienced the range of challenges and triumphs while remaining true to their commitment to their customers and employees alike. Growth is expected when dealing with a business such as Infomax, and it has certainly has grown. However, the growth that I’m speaking of is both professional and personal growth that Infomax encourages each of their employees to continually work on. I have never had an employer backup the words like those of the Jacobs family.
What makes you smile at the end of the day?
One would quickly think of my wife, the dog, or one of a dozen other things. But what makes me smile is knowing what I did that day made a difference. My position at Infomax is a low-profile job. However, when the customer is down or the salesperson is anxious to deliver a machine or one of a dozen daily chores need to be done, it is a good feeling at the end of the day that you had a small part in making it happen that day.
What is the most important thing you have learned in the last 5 years?
I would have to say it would be to learn to invest yourself wisely. Make more friends. Love your family harder. Develop your faith. Learn how to tell the difference between the little things in life and the few that are worthy of more attention. You are a precious commodity and there is only so much of you. Wasting yourself on people and things that are a bottomless pit only leads more problems. Invest in yourself so you can invest in others.
