Congrats to our Employee of the Week:
Brandon Walter, Grand Rapids, MI

Congratulations to Brandon Walter, our Training & Support Manager of the Automation Group. He's been an incredible force in our internal team and because of his hard work, dedication and incredible eye for details - we want to highlight him this week.

Here's what he told us during our interview:

What are the most interesting things you've learned lately?

I always think it’s really cool to see the technology we work with in action. I love when we finish a project and present it to the customer, their reaction to the technology is always great! It’s fun knowing that the technology we use really makes an impact on so many different levels that people don’t even realize.

What’s the best thing about working with IMI?

The IMI family is what really makes this job incredible. We have people from all different walks of life who are able to come together and not only work well with each other, but really enjoy each other and have fun. The nature of our work means that we may not see a coworker for months on end, yet when we do it’s as if we’ve been working together every day. We know we’re working with a company that truly cares about us and takes pride in what we do and are always excited for what’s to come. That is what makes this job truly amazing.

What are your future goals?

I’m working hard to develop a bigger and stronger training and support department for everyone. As we take on new projects and more people we want to be able to give them all the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in their job. We also want to provide opportunities for people who want to grow and learn new areas of expertise as well as continued growth in their current jobs.

Keep up the incredible work, Brandon! We appreciate your efforts and big vision for the Automation Group!

Brandi is currently working on her OSHA 30 to solidify her grasp on all things safety. She helps to manage any injuries, helping with reporting and admin on sites all over the USA.

A couple of weeks ago, our Clients Environment Health, Safety & Sustainability committee did a full-site safety audit and Brandi helped them receive a perfect 100% score. This is unheard of!

Congratulations to Brandi for all her commitment and growth in the last couple years. We received a phone call from another Supervisor on site commending Brandi for all her hard work and organizational skills to help them reach this unbelievable score.

One of IMI’s number one objectives for 2018/2019 is to promote and improve our safety procedures! With the help of people like Brandi, IMI will surely achieve our safety goals!

Susan Hahn

Thornton, CO

“I find it interesting at work that no matter where someone is from, that we can always find a way to work together to complete a common goal, and help each other learn new skills. In construction you meet all types of people from all over the country and I’ve learned a lot from them, they’ve helped me grow. Also, how your co-workers become your family when you are out on the road, and how we all look out for each other, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I couldn’t have gotten where I am without my co-workers and friends and they mean the world to me because of that. “

“As for my future, I plan to keep working in construction, keep building on my work skills, travelling the county, making new friends, seeing new places and experiencing all the world has to offer. My greatest joy is travelling and experiencing the world’s beauty with the friends I’ve made along the way on this job. They make it all worth it”.

Peter Markey

West Deptford, NJ

Some of our jobs, like this particular one, are short contracts. But nonetheless, the bright stars always shine! It's relatively simple for our onsite supervisors to notice technicians with dedication, and who care for their work.

Peter is one of those guys. He's new to the crew, but his efforts were noticed in a big way. He told us, "Prior to working for IMI, I spent the last 15 years working as a carpenter, mostly in the disaster areas of New Orleans, LA and the South Shore of Long Island, NY."

Maybe his humility and hard work come from that background; Whatever it is, we see you and appreciate you! Thank you for your dedication and hard work!
Jorge Galian

Marco Juarez

Marco started with IMI in January 2016. He had been installing conveyor systems with another employer and heard about IMI on site by other employees who loved our company and applied to come on board with us.

He started out as an entry level installer but gradually flourished on site, and is now in a leadership role and answers directly to the site Foreman & Supervisor. He oversees between 5 and 20 guys daily, and he concentrates on training, mentoring, and overseeing quality control.

The site Supervisor reached out to us to let us know that Marco is an integral part of getting this job done, and they "couldn’t do it without him" and his other Leads on site.

While Marco's site supervisor noticed the potential in him, he created his own path by demonstrating an exceptional work ethic, and an eagerness to learn.


You can't teach work ethic, you just have it or you don’t. Marco has it. Now it's about teaching the teacher and helping him become an even stronger leader on site, and eventually moving him towards becoming a Foreman.

Marco, thank you for your dedication to IMI. We are all proud of you and appreciate your efforts. We look forward to helping you grow your career!

Jorge has proven himself to be a fast learner and a careful worker who listens well to feedback. We look forward to watching you grow with IMI, Jorge!

Yamil has proven to be a reliable, hard-working employee who always answers the call when needed. He's shown great leadership skills through overseeing several other crew members and is someone IMI can count on to get the job done.


What he loves most about IMI is the continuous work to be filled and enjoys the opportunity to move around. He also enjoys the flexibility to relax in between jobs and then get back out into "work mode".

Aaron Romero-Rios

North Haven, CT

Before hearing about IMI through a friend, Aaron worked in the construction industry for over 4 years. He currently is working at our North Haven site and has been at that location for over a month now. Closing in on 6 years with our team, Aaron has been a great asset to IMI.

The job site in Bethlehem, PA is Amir's first assignment and he explains how "the best thing about working with IMI is the open communication I have with my recruiter." Communication is a key component to success in the workplace and we are glad to help Amir out along the way as much as possible.

Asked about what he has learned on-site lately, Amir said, "one of the most interesting things I’ve learned that this site was a different way to lace and cut the conveyor belts."
