On Wednesday, June 19th our Cleveland, TN operations celebrated its first year at Millwood! That is a cause for celebration all on its own, but even more exciting is that during that first year they had no accidents!
“Our success comes from having great team members to work with. We are a small operation but we are steadily growing,” said Lanny Lester, plant manager.
Of the 16 team members working in Cleveland, five have been there from the beginning and were incredibly proud of the recognition both they and the plant received.
“One of the comments that I keep hearing, even from the team members that have left, is that they feel like family,” said Johana Gomez, plant administrator and chaplain for Cleveland. “Some of those team members that left even came back because they realized how rare it is to find the sense of family we have here.”
During the celebration, they shared a picnic lunch while spending time with one another in fellowship. Pastor Jody Jones came to pray with the group as well as spend time with the team members.
The team members want to give special recognition to Lanny, as they appreciated his gratitude and his commitment to keeping them safe.
"While safety is of the utmost importance throughout Millwood, to make it a full year without an accident is an incredible feat," said Courtney Russell, director of human resources. "I commend Lanny and his team for all of their efforts! We appreciate all you do to stay productive and safe each and every day!"
