SurfacePrep People Rock!

Meet Christi Olmstead, Operations Manager for Abrasive Materials

Christi started working in this industry in 1999, and she has been with SurfacePrep since 2005.

Christi said that the best thing about our organization is the people. “Regardless of what branch or location you visit there is a family-type of atmosphere – you don’t always find that in organizations our size, and that says a lot about the kind of company we are,” Christi said.

“Christi is a wonder woman. She is such a caring person, not only about her coworkers, but the customers. She goes above and beyond with everything she does. Even with just a quote request, Christi will ensure that there is inventory, that a lead time is outlined, and every other detail is given before someone can even ask for it,” Clay Miller, Director of Business Development at SurfacePrep, said. “There is nobody more on top of their game than Christi.”

With her position at Abrasive Materials, Christi is often the first person our customers or coworkers speak or work with during their order processes.

“In this worldwide industry there are so many ways to utilize the material and products we sell,” Christi said. She always enjoys learning the different processes and procedures our customers are using.

“Abrasive Materials is also ISO 2001:2015 registered and compliant which brings its own challenges that I enjoy sorting through to ensure that we meet the goals we set each year,” Christi said.

Outside of work, Christi is known as “Mom.” Christi and her husband, Eric, have four children: Olivia, Ethan, Dylan, and Harper. “When we’re not at basketball, baseball, dance or gymnastics, I enjoy traveling, shopping and spending time with friends and extended family.”
