Wright Announces Winners of Service and Achievement Awards

Barberton, OH – January 2023 – Wright announces the winners of its service and achievement awards. The service and achievement awards are designed to reward and recognize those employees for their years of service.

Every year, Wright commemorates the employees for their years of service on November 30th. This date holds a special place in Wright’s heart as it was Pat Taylor’s, Wright’s former executive vice president’s, start date. Pat Taylor, who had a 56-year career, retiring in 2019, passed away on November 14, 2021.

This year’s service and achievement awards celebrated four years of awards due to COVID and highlighted 53 employees including CEO, Terry Taylor’s 50 years of service. Wright paid tribute to 22 employees celebrating five years of service, 17 employees celebrating 10 years of service, eight employees celebrating 15 years of service, three employees celebrating 20 years of service, two employees celebrating 35 years of service and one employee celebrating 50 years of service (Terry Taylor).

Wright partnered with SNAPPY, which allows employees to go online and choose a gift as appreciation of their service and loyalty to Wright.

“At Wright, our company culture focuses on our employees to take pride in their careers. Here, every employee’s contribution matters and is recognized,” said Tom Futey, president and co-owner, Wright. “Without our employees, Wright would not have the success we’ve had for the past 95 years.”
