It’s been a busy spring and summer for Pella Engraving Company as we bring on new talent to support long-time staffers who are moving into part-time roles and increase staffing to meet customer demand.

Ashley Stephenson has joined the Metalphoto® workshop for Pella Engraving Company in a full-time role. She is currently completing training with Metalphoto expert Connie Rowe.

Ashley helps prepare the aluminum plates once they are imprinted with text and images, then submerges them in the sealing tank full of boiling water. She ensures the quality of the final product is up to PEC’s high standards once the plates are removed from the tank and have cured. Ashley will also assist with plaque framing once she is fully up to speed with the Metalphoto process.

“The chance to grow and learn in a full-time role is what attracted me to Pella Engraving,” said Ashley, who grew up in Pella and previously worked at the Royal Amsterdam Hotel and Monarch’s Restaurant. “I appreciate that there is something a little different to do every day.”

Ashley has a son, Jaxson, who is two years old.
