    A Simpsonville plant has the perfect employee – he never gets tired, doesn’t take coffee breaks and is never late for work.

    What’s more, he is very popular with his coworkers at Faurecia in Simpsonville.

    “Hi, Salt, good to see you,” said Jermaine Scott, as he approached him in the parking lot.

    “It was really cool – I even got to take a picture sitting at his desk!” exclaimed Brown, his eyes sparkling as he described his experiences accompanying Yoder.
