Robert “Popeye” Prosper
Inside Sales / Customer Service Representative

Meet Popeye, who joined Precision Abrasives in 2014 as an Inside Sales & Customer Service Representative.

Popeye has more than 38 years of broad, substantial experience in the metals industry. He likens his attitude toward work to that of Bobby Jones, a Philadelphia 76er known for his dedication and hustle. Jones was also the winner of the NBA’s first Sixth Man Award.

“Bobby Jones was the ultimate sixth man. He was able to come into the game and fill any position on the floor. His versatility was outstanding.”

Before joining Precision, Popeye worked with Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI) as a gantry grinder operator, precision grind & flatness inspection supervisor, fork-truck instructor, and plant manager. As a member of the senior management team, he also worked on quality management initiatives, safety and OSHA compliance, budgeting, and planning. As project manager, Popeye was the lead man on all capital projects.

Outside of work, Popeye enjoys crossword puzzles, calligraphy, exercise, reading, and motorcycle riding. He also earned his commercial pilot's certificate, including multi-engine and instrument ratings, as well as his Eagle Scout award.
