Norman Davis

Employee Spotlight: Norman Davis, Maintenance Manager

"I am truly happy to see CF spend time and money on improvements, both on safety and efficiency initiatives… throughout the plant."

The date of October 19, 1970, was the beginning of a long and successful career at the Yazoo City Nitrogen Complex for Norman Davis, Maintenance Manager. This year marks 44 years of service for Norman and he continues to be excited about things on the horizon at the facility.

“My whole family has worked here, my father, my two brothers, and my son-in-law now works here. My father was in MT and he cleared the ground on which the #3 Kellogg Ammonia plant is now standing.”

“I remember the first time safety shoes were offered for sale to the employees. Today it is just part of the PPE required in the plant. All the hard hats being worn were aluminum and nowhere near the quality of hard hats that my guys are wearing today. I sit back sometimes and see how far we have come in our safety programs and safety culture. I realize we can still improve and we are making improvements every day.”

“The people at the plant are family to me. If there is any need in the community or for employees, our guys jump in. During natural disasters such as the recent tornado, you could count on the folks in the plant to help out with anything.

“I am truly happy to see CF spend time and money on improvements, both on safety and efficiency initiatives, and all the things being done throughout the plant.”

“CF is committed to building our workforce and offering new opportunities for the young people in our community. The longer term employees are encouraged with the fresh faces showing up in our plant. They are eager to share their technical knowledge and skills with the next generation of maintenance craftsman. Our experienced technicians get a feeling of pride when they see the new technicians begin to excel in their crafts.

I’ve had the opportunity of a lifetime to work here at CF Industries with this group of people. I can’t tell you how many times contractors have come to my office and have told me that we have the best group of folks that they have ever worked with. We truly have the best people here.”
