The project managers at Midwest Door & Hardware are the superheroes behind the scenes! The main responsibility of each project manager is to ensure the project has a completed set of shop drawings — from drafting the drawings, to getting them approved by the team, our project managers stays on top of the details for each client.
You’ll also find the Midwest Door & Hardware project managers developing, planning, coordinating, and directing the workflow through production. Organization and experience go hand-in-hand with the daily tasks of our team.
While everyone on our team wears multiple “hats”, these folks bring a whole new meaning to this common phrase. They’re knowledgeable in all aspects of their projects and help execute all the details from the minute we get the bid.
Beyond planning the details of orders and measurements they also work with the manufacturing team to discuss design intent and assembly drawings, or shop drawings. Our project managers work directly with our clients to make sure they understand design, building requirements, and codes. They also work with our sales team to schedule deliveries and installation.
Let’s get to know the team a little better!
MEET KAELYN SCHROEDER
Kaelyn is a well-known member of the Midwest Door & Hardware team. Starting as an administrative assistant and working up to a project manager has given her irreplaceable experience in the company and industry. With an interest in drafting and architecture, the move to project manager was an easy transition for Kaelyn.
Kaelyn says, “Since I worked at the front office first, I have really gotten to know a lot of our customers. It’s really rewarding to help each and every one of them.” With an ever-changing industry, there’s something new to learn each day — which is what keeps Kaelyn coming back for more each day!
Outside the office, Kaelyn loves to use her textile background to sew pretty much anything, including baby shoes that are sold by a local company. She stays plenty busy with that as well as chasing around her two kiddos. We’re glad to have Kaelyn on our team!
