August 2021 Anniversaries

As students head back to the classroom this fall, many returning to in-person learning for the first time in over a year, learning together again is a main focus. Our employees might not be in the classroom anymore – but they know a thing or two about working together to achieve excellence!

A large group of our team players – with a whopping 344 years of combined experience – are celebrating anniversaries this month, including Curt Dixon, an extrusion operator at our Mogadore facility. Curt began his career at KEP right after graduating from Kent Roosevelt High School in 1977. He’s been working hard ever since to earn his place as a well-respected teammate.
