Joining the team to celebrate the occasion was Steve Boccadoro, vice president; Perry D’Ortenzio, vice-president, sales and marketing; John Iannuzzi, human resources manager; and Ed Reeves, supply chain manager.
“Along with many stories and laughs; it was a very successful and entertaining afternoon that allowed all employees and guests to celebrate and reminisce of the successful years past, and also look to the future as we plan for many more years of success in the Perth facility,” said company representatives.
