Barb began her career in the printing industry over 30 years ago as a cromalin maker at a pre-press facility. Since that time, she has served as a customer service representative and an estimator at a number of different print companies in the Toledo area. Barb joined Metzgers as an Estimator in April of 2015. Her years of experience in the industry, dependable nature, and wealth of print knowledge made her an obvious asset to Metzgers and our clients.

When she isn’t at the office, Barb loves spending time with her grandson and daughters. You might also find her meeting up with friends for dinner and cocktails or shopping (but not for groceries).

Print and Specialty Services / Building Manager

My primary role is to coordinate facility upgrades and daily maintenance. I am also involved directly with Tom and Joe Metzger in determining equipment and business purchases along with installation of those. My printing background began in 1972 as a part time pressmen. Other than a brief tour in the Air Force, printing has been my career field. I enjoy sharing and absorbing the process of a challenging project with the people around me. I work with some extremely creative, intelligent individuals at Metzgers. If you don’t learn something new here every day, you are not paying attention.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

In the Air Force I was a ground crew member in the Strategic Air Command responsible for launch and recovery of B-52 Bombers and KC-135 Tankers.

An Engineer or Architect. I always enjoyed Math and building things.

Estimator

Denise graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Geography and a Specialization in Cartography. She likes to tell people her introduction to printing was through the back door. The map company she worked for also printed their own maps. Once she saw those presses, she was hooked.

Her professional experience in printing has spanned 27 years working for various printing companies in Southeast Michigan and Toledo. The attention to details has definitely helped in her various positions of scheduling, planning, estimating and customer service.

Originally from the Detroit area, Denise lives with her husband Larry and their 2 cats on twelve acres in the Temperance area. In their spare time they can be found scouring swap meets looking for parts to restore their classic cars and trucks. Their collection includes a 1968 Dodge Superbee, 1978 Lil Red Express pick-up, 1978 Warlock pick-up and a 1964 Dodge Polara. They are running out of garages!

Name one thing not many people know about you.

You don’t know that about me because I don’t want you to know!

Would you rather skydive or swim with sharks?

Skydive!!!

What are your pet peeves?

People talking on the phone while driving. Pick one thing to do and concentrate on it. Nothing worse than some in a 65mph zone doing 50mph and when you pass them, they are talking on the phone. Obviously, they forgot they were also driving.

What are your favorite things to do while away from the office?

My husband and I have been on 6 cruises. We are going on an Alaskan cruise and land tour next August. My dream is to someday be able to afford a 3 week cruise to somewhere, maybe the South Pacific Islands!

She likes interacting with people, learning new things, and says she used to roller skate a lot.

Who or what inspires you? 

There are a lot of people that inspire me in different ways.

Yard work, dinner with friends, and hunt at garage sales.

Do you squeeze the toothpaste from the middle or the end?

End.

You wouldn’t be caught dead… where?
