Keyston is able to build bench strength for the future, look at new technology ideas to expose our products, and start to make a career for some really cool kids. Some of us with shorter runways really enjoy a fresh, new way to look at business.”

The summer internship even furthered my skillset beyond what I learned in school with focuses on procurement and inventory management, which really helped me for my senior year classes at Auburn. Everyone with Keyston was extremely helpful by always answering any questions I had and making sure that I fully understood all aspects of the company’s supply chain. Auburn and Keyston Bros. combined to make for a great internship process which was extremely beneficial for finishing my supply chain coursework and starting out my career with valuable experience as a Supply Chain Analyst.”
