Honoring Our Retirees of 2020

Of our 290 team members, 79 have worked for our family of companies for 20 years or longer.  That means over a quarter of our team is made up of people who have committed more than 20 years of their lives to this enterprise.

When 2020 ends, that list will be shorter by nine men who take with them a combined 247 years of service and experience when they retire.  These men have made incredible contributions throughout our operation, often serving in different roles, locations and departments.

We honor each of them and thank them for the impact they have made in terms of performance, wisdom, shared knowledge, and demonstrated examples of character and values.  We wish them all health and happiness in their well-deserved retirements.
