On the evening of Oct. 25, Autoquip Corporation honored twenty employees for their 40 years of service with the company. In recognition of this milestone, the honorees and their guests attended a celebratory event at the Dominion House in Guthrie, Ok. The event served as an opportunity to honor and thank the dedicated employees who have supported the company over the years.
Autoquip started its operations in Guthrie in 1974 when many of its honorees were graduating high school and starting to look for employment. “Having one employee serve the company for 40 years is truly a milestone, having 20 employees is remarkable,” said Autoquip’s President, Joe Robillard. “These 20 employees, what we affectionately call the “Autoquip 40 Club”, are amazing folks who have dedicated their hard work and talents over the years to make us the successful company we are today.”
Autoquip has been committed to Guthrie for 45 years, providing steady employment and providing best-in-class manufacturing of material handling equipment to customers worldwide. At a time, when most workers stay at a company an average 4.2 years, Autoquip is most proud of its unwavering commitment to its people, and their long-term commitment in return.
