Employee Focus: Joe Pawlow




For March we will be focusing on one of Van Mark’s long-term employees, Joe Pawlow.  Joe has been an employee of Van Mark since 1986.  Originally hired in as a Production employee, within a few years, Joe’s abilities and knowledge had developed to the point that he was promoted to a maintenance position.  Joe mastered this position and shortly thereafter, also became involved in Research & Development of new and existing products.  Through the years Joe has acquired the knowledge and skills that have positioned him as an integral part of Van Mark’s R&D team.  Joe shared with us that he hopes in the future to make R&D his primary focus.

When asked what Joe likes best about working at Van Mark, he commented that he loves having a steady schedule that doesn’t require working weekends or over-time.  In addition, Joe enjoys the positive work environment at Van Mark.  Joe also tells us that he is proud of his part in developing and introducing new products.  Joe has had a hand in building most of the prototypes of developing products that have been introduced to our customer base since 1994.

When Joe isn’t at work you’ll typically find him riding or working on his motorcycle.  Joe, along with some good friends, enjoys doing charity rides in and around the Detroit area.  He also owns a couple of vintage automobiles which he takes pleasure in restoring and modifying as well as cruising around town on occasion.  Joe also enjoys camping, traveling, and live concerts.  Joe grew up in Redford and has remained a resident there since.
