On January 30th, the 23rd Annual Awards Banquet was held at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City. With the weather cooperating, the attendance was great for the annual event.
The evening started with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, followed up with a delicious dinner. After dinner the program started with Skip Perley making a few comments about the events that happened this past year at Thompson Electric and EI. After his opening comments, a few videos were played featuring what our clients say about Thompson Electric and EI (Electric Innovations). If you want to see these videos, please go to our web-site at www.thompsonelectriccompany.com.
For the Years of Safety Awards, TEC Corp recognized 192 employees that had no incidents this past year and we had 2 employees, Tim Hall and John Staiert that have gone 23 years with no incidents. That is quite an accomplishment. We also celebrated Awards for Years of Service, with 17 employees recognized for 5 years of service, 10 employees with 10 years of service, 6 employees with 15 years of service and Mike Julius with 20 years, Tim Hall with 25 years and John Staiert with 30 years of service.
We also want to congratulate Roger Scheitler and Chuck Carnell on their retirement. They both spent many years working for Thompson Electric and will be greatly missed, but we wish them well in their retirement.
To close out the evening, we were entertained by Emmy Award winning, an acapella group, Tonic Sol-Fa.
As 2015 comes to a close for TEC-Corp, we already are looking forward to 2016.
