Congratulations Ali Nkulu, a Newly Appointed U.S. Citizen!

Becoming a citizen of our country is a significant accomplishment and one that deserves recognition and celebration. We are happy to announce that our Greensboro, NC team member, Ali Nkulu, completed the naturalization process this month and is now a U.S. citizen!

Ali was born in the continent of Africa. Originally from the Congo, he later fled to Burundi where he obtained refugee status. Once Ali was granted access to enter the United States, he did not wait long to begin the citizenship process. American citizenship is a lengthy commitment that requires dedication and study. After 7 months of applications and interviews, and passing both civics and English tests, Ali was finally sworn in.

When asked what his new status means to him, Ali replied, “It feels good to be able to have the same rights as all the other US citizens. I am finally able to vote and get my passport, which will allow me to travel with my family.”

OMS Production Manager, Dan Abel, highly regards his fellow employee. “I am extremely proud of him for obtaining his U.S. citizenship while working full-time and supporting his family.” 

Ali has been a member of the O’Neal Manufacturing Services team in Greensboro, for the past 15 months and currently holds the position of machine operator.  His fellow teammates celebrated with Ali and recognized his commitment to this great accomplishment.

“Ali has been an exceptional employee, dedicated to our company’s success,” remarked Amanda Wood, General Manager for the OMS Greensboro facility. “I’m excited for this opportunity for him, and it makes me feel good to know that he chose to grow his career here, with our Greensboro team.”
