Happy Retirement, Karen McRobie!

After 45 great years with KEP, we wish Karen McRobie a happy retirement! Karen worked at our Winesburg facility as our Shipping Coordinator / Administrator! While we were sad to see Karen go, we are so excited for her to enjoy this next chapter in her life. Recently, Karen was presented with a retirement gift, flowers, and balloons to celebrate her many years of exceptional service while at KEP.

“It was always a joy to work with her as we all grew with the company. She is the most likable and easiest person all-around to work with,” said co-worker, Shirl Shrock. “Everyone always loved and appreciates her. She is very missed!”

“Karen embodies everything we want people to think about Kent Elastomer Products. She is kind, meticulous in her work, helps others when they need it, and deeply cares for everyone and the company,” said KEP President Bob Oborn. “Karen is not only a great employee, she is a very good friend. I will miss seeing and talking to her. I wish her the best of luck and fun in her retirement!”
