Today was a special day. We honored 12 associates with an added total of 270 years of service with Kalas. The loyalty and shared history was amazing. Memories were shared of memories from 40 years past through to today. Memories of when Kalas’ processes were manual, when all operations were out of one plant, when various elders were in leadership and more. President Jack Witwer spoke, individually thanking every service anniversary honoree for their dedicated years of work, noticeably humbled to lead an organization with such unparalleled stories of commitment and hard work. 

Today’s luncheon was definitely evidence of Kalas’ associates truly being a family of sorts. Below is a list of the Kalas family members honored today and how long their year of anniversary. Three individuals have been with Kalas for 40 years, one for 35, two for 25, one for 15, one for 10, and three for 5 years. Each and every one contrinutes to making Kalas all that we are. If you know any of these individuals, please pause and thank them for their years of hard work and devotion.
