Happy 59th Anniversary to Tyler Pipe’s James Madison!

Did you know that 2.5 million Americans quit their jobs every month? In fact, a majority of all turnover occurs in the first year of employment. But Tyler Pipe and Coupling team member James Madison would not agree with that statistic. James has been a Cupola Operator at Tyler Pipe in Tyler, Texas for 59 years. No, that’s not a typo; he has been a dedicated, hard working member of the Tyler Pipe team for 59 years.
 
Thank you, James, for your commitment and dedication for almost six decades. We appreciate your service and look forward to celebrating 60 next year.

Tyler Coupling Team Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day

Millions of people around the world donned their best green attire on March 17th to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  Did you know that the first ever St. Patrick’s Day parade was actually held in New York in 1762.  Today it is the largest and oldest St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Tyler Coupling in Marshfield, Missouri celebrated this year by serving team members green popcorn and punch.  Team members were hoping to get a little luck of the Irish.

Tyler Pipe Silver Anniversary CelebrationOn Saturday, November 8, Tyler Pipe held its annual Silver Anniversary Celebration where active team members with 25 years of service were honored with an evening of dining and entertainment at one of the nicest venues in Tyler, Texas.

One of the honorees this year was Greg Simmons, Assistant General Manager of Tyler Pipe. Greg and 10 other team members were recognized for their 25 years of continuous service and making the world’s best cast iron pipe and fittings. Greg began his service at our sister plant AB&I in California and continues to provide excellent leadership in Texas.

Tyler Pipe has a tenured work force that boasts an extraordinary 55% of team members with 25 or more years of service. John Springer, Tyler Pipe Controller, did the honors and awarded Greg with a custom engraved watch showing that he is now a tenured member of the Silver Anniversary Club. John is a member of the club and went through his own induction ten years ago.

Congratulations to all of the new Silver Anniversary Club members! We appreciate your years of service and look forward to many more.
