Kelsie Ahbe and Her Olympic's Experience
Kelsie Ahbe who grew up locally and is the daughter of Canton Drop Forge’s president, Brad Ahbe, recently attended business update meetings with CDF’s shop floor associates. Kelsie shared some of her experiences as an Olympic athlete competing for Canada in women’s pole vault where she reached the Olympic finals. She related how her personal work ethic where she focused every day on the little things to make sure she could compete with the best in the world is just as CDF must do every day. She said she wanted to go to sleep every night knowing she had done her best that day and was proud of her efforts. Her father reviewed the current business conditions, including potential new customers, improvement efforts, capital spending projects as well as the focus on safety, 5-S and quality.
