ITC Manufacturing: Leaders in Wire Mesh Decking

Holiday Luncheons!

The holidays are here! And what better way to kick-off the weekend than with a catered lunch to celebrate! In both our Columbus and Phoenix plants, employees came out, some even in ugly sweaters, to enjoy a hot buffet catered by their favorite local spots, an ugly sweater contest and a raffle drawing where they could win an array of prizes. Everyone loved the food, attire, company and holiday spirit that was shared throughout the event.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Check out images from the event in both Phoenix and Columbus, below.

Operation Santa

Christmas came early for ITC families this last Saturday! Santa Claus and his little elf helper took time out of their busy schedule to stop by the Columbus plant and deliver a special gift to all the children. The gifts delivered were personally selected for each child based on their age and gender.

To bring in the spirit of the season, families enjoyed the day with holiday music and food for the whole family. Kids had balloons to play with and crayons and coloring books to keep them entertained.

Overall, it was a great day to celebrate the holiday season and bring ITC families together!

“The kids loved Santa Claus and had big precious smiles on their faces,” said Brett Caron, HR Business Partner at ITC. “To see how happy everyone was really made my day.”

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from ITC!!

In addition, Chuck Forsha was recognized for his service from 1973 through 1975 and 1983 through 1989.

As a Maintenance Lead, Tony Winkler served a six-year tour where he was stationed at several different bases in the United States and abroad. In addition, Ray Ray Limbrick was recognized for his service from 2001 through 2006.

“I quite literally owe the life I enjoy today to ITC as I came to Phoenix from California with absolutely nothing,” said Winkler. “Everything I have today started with Johnnie’s handshake and Beth’s ‘welcome aboard.’ I am eternally grateful for both.”

United States Navy

George Williams, Inventory/Shipping Coordinator at ITC’s Columbus plant served four years, including one tour in the Mediterranean as an Equipment Operator (E-O). Terri Wiggins, Shipping Manager in Phoenix served one tour of duty. In addition, Eric Smith was recognized for his service from 2007 through 2011.
