Jason Cummings, Production Manager
Before joining the Bay Wood Products team as production manager in July 2016, Jason Cummings served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps for more than 12 years. He brings the strength and honor of his military service to the new role at one of the largest single site manufacturers of wooden pallets in Alabama and Mississippi.
After his military service, Cummings worked for Georgia Pacific and Quincy Compressor, gaining more knowledge of the manufacturing industry. “I have enjoyed getting to know the people of Bay Wood and learning the processes of the pallet industry,” he said. “ I’m working closely with my peers to set the procedures and enhance the culture that will help grow Bay Wood into the future.”
Safety is more than just a catchphrase for Cummings. It’s a fact of life and a daily mission. “My focus is safety, quality and production,” he said. “That ensures our customers receive a quality product on time and that every member of our team leaves work without injury.”
Cummings said the integrity of the management team, and Bay Wood’s reputation for honesty and ethical business practices, attracted him to the firm: “It’s obvious to me already that our dedication to the customer AND our employees is second to none.”
A native of Clanton, Ala., Cummings and his wife, Ashley, have three daughters: Addyson, Adaleigh and Allyson. When he’s not at work, he spends time with his family enjoying outdoor activities.
