It is with a very heavy heart that Piqua Emery has to announce the passing of one of our owners. Helen Mikolajewski one of the owners here at Piqua Emery Foundry has passed away at the age of 98. Helen will be remembered for her sharp wit and caring demeanor. She was always around the shop until the past few years and cared deeply for all her employees. She will never be forgotten by those that had the privelege to work for her. One of the most charitable women in the area, and adored by her family and friends. Our deepest condolences go out to her daughter Susie McLain, Roger McLain, and all her grandkids. You will be missed greatly but your legacy will live on forever. RIP Helen
I remember when our newest employee spotlight, Jeremy Ward, first started 18 years ago. Like most new hires Jeremy STARTED AS A SHAKEOUT MAN, MOVED UP TO MOLDER, FURNACE OPERATOR, Maintenance, and everything in between. Now Jeremy serves as Foundry Superintendent. He has turned into one of our hardest working employees. He has made the transition into management with ease and is one of our most trusted employees.
Jeremy will show up at 3:30 am if need be and stay until the job is finished. Without Jeremy’s help and support Piqua Emery would not be as successful . It is with great privelage that I get to thank him for his 18 years of service. You are truly appreciated at PEF. Thanks for all you do.
Piqua Emery is extremely proud of our hardworking staff. February brings about the anniversary of two long tenured valued employees. Randy Sampson (CAMERA SHY: NOT PICTURED) started at PEF 2-7-1994. He is one of the best finish grinders around. If Randy sends something out the door you can guarantee that the casting looks like jewelery. Thank you Randy Sampson for all your years of service.
Curtis Pitts (pictured) started his service at PEF on 2-16-1995. He serves as a band saw operator, as well as a jack of all trades as needed. Curtis always has a smile and it is easy to see that he takes a lot of pride in his work. Congrats Curtis….you are truly valued.
On behalf of PEF we salute you guys!!!!
