Meet McWane: Mike Emhoff, Tyler Couplings

Mike Emhoff 43 Years

Mike Emhoff is retiring from Tyler Couplings in Marshfield, Missouri, after 43 years of dedicated service. Mike celebrated his retirement with fellow team members, family, and friends at a reception held on December 31. Everyone enjoyed a slideshow presentation showing how the facility and people had changed over the years.

Mike began his career in 1972 as a tool maker in the Tool & Die Department when the facility was known as Northern Metal Products. Through the years, the company changed to Alloy Unlimited, Plessey Aero Precision, and Tyler Pipe and finally to Tyler Couplings. Mike transferred to the Maintenance Department in April 1979 and was promoted to a management position in 1986. Mike’s latest position was the Supervisor of Maintenance, Tool & Die, and Screws.

Mike was presented with a watch, a plaque from Tyler Coupling, and a plaque from team members working in his department in appreciation for his many years of service. We wish Mike the best during his well-deserved retirement
