David Turnage

David Turnage has been with Ledwell for 23 years and is currently our Purchasing Director. He has worked in a few different shops over the course of his career; Brake and Shear, Feedbody, and was the supervisor of the Pattern Torch before moving to his current position.

David purchases all the necessary supplies needed for every shop to continue working. He said his favorite part of his job is, “Meeting and talking to new people. Also, trying to find the cheapest dollar.”

David and his wife of 19 years, Missy, have two daughters Holly, 18 in her first year of college and Hannah, 13 in eighth grade and plays basketball and is a cheerleader. They also have four wonderful dogs. While not working, he enjoys playing softball. David is part of a team called Cheetahnation that plays almost every weekend.

The most memorable project David recalls is building a house for Watersprings Ranch. “The look on the children’s faces was PRICELESS,” he said about the experience. Not only does David work at Ledwell, he has become close friends with many throughout the years.
