Frank Irwin

Name: Herb Habecker

Title: Inventory manager

Department: Operations

Month/year joined Bender: October 1998

Before joining Bender, I worked for PECO for a couple years after high school/while in college doing meter reading, helping swap out meters, and any other electrical related tasks. Back then I went house-to-house and read the meter dials then punched the readings into a computer which was then sent to billing. I also had a landscaping business for a short period of time and realized it wasn’t for me.

Currently at Bender I’m the Inventory Manager and work closely with the operations team. I deal with the general maintenance and vehicles for the company and Bender family, working closely with Mr. Bender, Dorothea Bender, and Sabine Bender. I work with SAP and am involved with implementing the upgrade to our SAP system. On a typical day I release all of the production jobs in the system and help plan out the production schedule. I see what parts are available, what has been ordered, and organize the schedule. If we are out of stock on parts I make notes of this, factoring in what we have in stock and what we can actually produce on a given day. This also includes making all the in house labels and paperwork that goes with orders. On the side, I am a part of the safety committee and other internal projects.

Some of my favorite Bender perks are the vacation time (you accrue a lot after 22 years), culture, and benefits package. I’m truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people at Bender throughout my tenure. I like that we make hospital equipment and have a wonderful, safe product which helps people. I truly enjoy coming in to work every day. If I need anything, the company has my back.

I have a long list of hobbies. I love my family and friends most of all and I spend as much time with them as I can. I love all types of music, from the heaviest of rock to orchestra. You name it, I probably like it. I love art (I'm basically a walking canvas) and playing guitar - I actually think I have a shopping problem with music equipment. I collect paintings and prints from the artists I respect. I could go on, but I'll try to keep the list short.
