PIERCE DISTRIBUTION SERVICES COMPANY 60th ANNIVERSAY CELEBRATION
On Saturday April 12th, 2014 Pierce associates, customers, and friends gathered at Giovanni’s Restaurant and Convention Center in Rockford, IL to celebrate 60 proud years of business. Pierce was founded on the core values of hard work, integrity, and customer satisfaction by Ray Pierce in 1954 in Rockford. Pierce continues to apply those same principles under the leadership of current President and CEO, Kevin Hogan who provided closing remarks for the celebration.
It was great to see many of our customers in attendance. Some were kind enough to say a few words relating to current partnerships, such as Frank Pagura (Komatsu America), Jim Oilschlager (Metso Minerals) and Todd Iossi (Manitou). Our sustained growth would be impossible without the support of our customers and for that we are thankful.
The event was planned by Chris Cacciatore and hosted by Greg Franchini from Pierce Box and Paper Company. Other speakers were Jack Ward from Reno & Zahm LLP, Mike Smith from Wipfli LLP and Tony Chiodini from Pierce.
We look forward to many years ahead; servicing our customers and providing support to the many Pierce associates whose time and effort make Pierce a “Best in Class” supply chain service provider.
