After working in the manufacturing industry for a few years, he began his career in the motor shop business in 1992 as a machinist at a small shop.

Greg Weeks – Greg Weeks has joined us as a senior account representative out of Macon, Georgia. Greg began his career in the motor/electrical apparatus repair industry in 1974, his senior year in high school. The owner of a small repair shop told him on his first day, “Son, as long as water is being pumped, air is being moved, and gears and conveyors are being turned you will have a job because there is a motor in there somewhere”. He was absolutely right. After 3 years there, he worked for Ingleside Electric fpr 20 years, then at TAW for 19 1/2 years, all in repair sales. He has extensive experience in the pulp and paper industry. He enjoys working with people and solving problems whether it is with customers or fellow employees. He was born and raised in Macon, Georgia and happily married to his childhood sweetheart for 41 years. In his free time, he enjoys traveling to the beach, especially Sanibel Island, Florida.
Keith Amerson – Keith began his career in electrical/mechanical repair in 1989 at a small family owned motor shop in Macon, GA. He began in the steam pit/ strip out area and moved from there to mechanic for several years. Keith then moved into the winding department, and then moved into inside sales. As a natural progression, he moved into outside sales. Keith has always been someone who likes the challenge of new things and the idea of broadening his skills rather than having just vertical experience.
In 1995, Keith accepted a position of mechanic with a larger Motor Repair shop where he started in Small Motor Department and moved to Large Motor Department – after some time there he accepted the Large Motor Leadman position. After working as Large Motor Leadman, he became Production Manager.
In 2007 Keith accepted the Plant Manager’s position with full P&L responsibilities with management over Production, Accounting, Field Services and Customer Service Departments. Leadership and Technical skills coupled with a customer service centered attitude makes Keith Amerson a perfect fit for the Jay Industrial Repair family.
