Journey to Journeyman: Josh Lang

November 09, 2021

When it comes to advancing into the job you want, Josh Lang is making a way at Webster Industries.

Josh heard about Webster Industries from an old friend he’d worked with previously who was already employed at Webster. He thought Josh would be a good fit, so Josh applied and joined the team in 2013. He had some experience as a machinist previously, enough to get started, but even with that experience, Josh was able to be trained right away for what Webster needed.

In his role as a machinist, Josh sets up machines for other people to run and helps to keep production running. As a machinist, “Every day you come in, you are going to do something different. It’s nice to not do the same thing day in and day out,” Josh shared.

The people Josh works with make the job enjoyable and the days go by quickly.

“Everybody on the floor is fun to work with, we all have a good time, we joke around as we get our work done,” said Josh. The flexibility for family and home life is another perk as well. “Management is pretty good with working with people for time off for kids and family reasons. Everybody gets along pretty well.”

In addition to a solid work environment, employees at Webster have many opportunities to be trained and promoted from within.

In fact, Josh was recently accepted into Webster’s apprenticeship program to earn his journeyman card. He will complete the 8,000-hour and four-year program at Terra State Community College. A journeyman’s license will open up many career opportunities for Josh, at Webster and beyond. His ambition and desire paired with Webster’s willingness to invest in their employees makes for a winning combination.


“Any kind of training I was willing to do, I was given,” Josh said. “If you are willing to learn, we’ll train you how to do it.”
