Congratulations to two of our Western Fastener family
We are very pleased to be celebrating 30 years of service for Bob Rosen and Jo-Anne Chase, seen here with Western Fastener President Scott Sutherland at their 30th anniversary party.
Jo-Anne started with Western Fastener in 1973, barely out of her teens. She left in February of ’78 for a short-lived move back east and returned in December. She ventured out to start her own business in 1983, and in 1991 came home to stay. There must be some truth to the adage that the third time’s a charm. Some of the relationships Jo-Anne has developed with her contacts span four decades!
Bob started with another company selling tools and supplies for electronics manufacturing and building relationships before making his way to Western Fastener. We still get calls for Bob from people who worked with him over 30 years ago!
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Bob in the field, and it’s clear he truly enjoys what he does, and that his customers are happy to see him. People are constantly stopping him to chat, sometimes fastener related and sometimes not, and I’m always impressed how he remembers everyone’s name, or where they travelled on vacation.
The overall average length of service of Western Fastener employees is nineteen years, with the sales department having well over twenty years experience.
If you want a fastener supplier with a proven track record and career employees with decades of knowledge and experience, you’ve come to the right place!
