It is time to celebrate August anniversaries! This month we’d like to highlight Curt Dixon who 43 years ago joined the KEP team right out of high school. Beginning his career with KEP in the latex tubing dip room, he transitioned to extrusion when the company expanded and became the first Extrusion Operator in 1987. He is well respected and is one of the historians of the company. In August the team honors over 340 years of combined experience. Congratulations to Curt and all valued team members!
