When Kumar Seokaran moved to MN in 2020 he was looking for a solid career with a good company. He had previous experience in manufacturing with John Deere so when the opportunity to work at BTD came along it was a good fit. But during his time here, he’s found more than a job, he found a career. 

“BTD provides so much room for employees to grow,” Kumar said. “They also have rewarded my hard work ethic.”

When presented with opportunities to learn something new Kumar always approaches it with eagerness. 

“We needed someone on press brake. He was willing to learn, and we were willing to train,” said Jake Riddle, manufacturing manager.  

It’s that open mind and excitement for learning that will continue to take Kumar where he wants and how far he wants at BTD.

“BTD provides great opportunities with much room for advancement,” he said. “Everything they promised in the interview, they did. It has been more than I expected and it keeps going.”
