As we head into Labor Day weekend, we can’t help but appreciate the dedication of our employees. August was a particularly special month as it marked a significant milestone for six IWCO Direct employees who celebrated 30-year anniversaries with the company. Their roles and locations are varied; three have worked at our Chanhassen campus since 1987 and three are located at our Little Falls, MN facility. Their current roles include Sales Administrator, Equipment Technician 3, Machine Operator 2, Team Lead 2, and Material Handler.
All agree they’ve seen remarkable changes over the past 30 Labor Day holidays. The greatest change has been in technology and each laughs when they describe how they spent their days in 1987 compared to today. Their passion for learning, working as part of a team, and adapting to change is the foundation of our success as a company.
While we recognize noteworthy anniversaries every month, six 30-year anniversaries in one month is remarkable on many levels. These six employees who joined us back in 1987 are just a snapshot of the remarkable talent, spirit, and dedication that make IWCO Direct an industry leader. Our business and the products we produce have become increasingly complex, but it’s these simple values that fuel what we do.
We would like to thank all of our employees―those who have been with us for 30 years and those who have been with us for 30 hours― for their dedication and support. Enjoy another safe and happy Labor Day!
Please Help Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey
While much of the country will enjoy a day off from work on Monday, we can’t help but reflect on the reports from Texas and Louisiana about the devastating storm named Harvey. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who will not be able to think about relaxing on Labor Day as they try to take stock of what happened and begin rebuilding their lives. If you want to help, contact the Red Cross at https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-harvey to learn how.
