Phil Heal: Clairton, Pennsylvania
Phil Heal spent almost 20 years working for Koppers when a career change took him in another direction. As he contemplated his future and career, his former employer immediately came to mind and, after 10 years, he was back working at Koppers.
Now working as the Plant Superintendent for Koppers Clairton facility, Phil is responsible for the daily operation of the plant and provides leadership to the facility's production and personnel. His job requires him to comply with safety, health and environmental policies and procedures as well as meeting financial, production and shipping goals.
Phil said his co-workers are helpful and dedicated and his decision to come back to Koppers was a good move for him professionally as well as personally.
"There's a dedication here that you don't see in other places," he said. "Everyone wants to do the right thing in the right way for the customers and for each other."
