Scott Fulbright, IT Manager, has been with MPCA for seven years, and four in his current role. His job is to make sure that everything is running from an IT standpoint company-wide.

“I rely on Affinity to handle our servers, networking, and backups. We typically handle applications in-house, but know we can also count on Affinity for support when needed,” said Scott.

Anthony Trennert, with MPCA for over three years as IT specialist, is responsible for ensuring that all systems within the plant run smoothly.

“We rely on Affinity to work with groups within the company and outside vendors to ensure all critical systems can talk to the network,” said Anthony.

Ready for Expansion

In 2018, the company expanded into Texas and Oregon. The biggest challenges were setting up a stable infrastructure and supporting the new plants operationally with a unified system, sharing applications and servers from a central network.

Affinity experts traveled to each location to ensure smooth setup of infrastructure elements including all switches, internet and WiFi, and other related services. They also ensured that the company’s security systems worked with their network, including cameras and badge readers.

“Affinity was very helpful in coordinating the many different vendors and systems that needed to communicate with each other,” said Anthony.
