January 2022 Updates – Arctic Apparel

Arctic Apparel at Dickson Industries, Inc.

The only thing worse than shoveling snow is FREEZING while shoveling snow! In addition to our classic DI-3 jacket and DI-234 vest, we have recently reintroduced our Bering jacket and Bib trouser. Sold separately or as a set, these stylish garments provide Puffin protection to -20 below, and are versatile enough to go from Snowmobile to fireside.

Also back by demand is the slightly retooled yet ever-so-warm YFB Dickson blanket! This oversized blanket brings the warmth and comfort of our insulated garments into a versatile, washable blanket – suitable for all purposes! Whether tailgating, camping, watching soccer tournaments or snuggling up in front of the television, our YFB is as warm as it is soft.

Employee Spotlight: Lisa Finch

The key tenet of Dickson Industries, Inc. is the value which we place on our employees.  A positive working environment wouldn’t be possible without every member of our team.

This month, we’re honored to spotlight Lisa Finch, our garment department Manager and Embroidery Supervisor who has been with Dickson Industries, Inc. for almost five years.  With new projects making for a constantly evolving work place, Lisa never has a dull day in the office.

When asked about her favorite part of her workday, she said “my favorite part of my day is coming in and figuring out what I’m going to accomplish that particular day. One of the best things about my job is that I never do the same thing twice in a row. It is both challenging and rewarding finding the balance to keep things for my department running smoothy.”  Learning how to sew when she was growing up, Lisa even enjoys helping out with the production team on occasion.  “It’s fun coming to work and getting to be creative. Not everyone gets to wake up every day and be excited to head to work, but I do!”

When she’s not at work, Lisa and her husband, Zeth, have their hands full at home.  They have been married for eight years and have three beautiful kids between the ages of two and eight and a family dog named Cheeto.  Even at home Lisa finds outlets to stay creative like baking, scrapbooking, and crafts with her kids, “when we’re together and having a good time, I’m in my happy place.”
