Channellock, Inc. is proud to serve our community, and we are proud of our American-made products. And while we take pride in being a family-owned company for 129 years right here in Meadville, Pennsylvania, we realize that we owe our opportunity for success and freedom to prosper to those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
General George Patton once said, “The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.”
This and every Veterans Day, we pause and take time to honor those who are serving and those veterans who have served before them.
For us, it is personal. We currently employ 39 Americans who are veterans of the military. Of those who have served, all branches are represented at Channellock, Inc., including the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. Some are still serving our nation in the National Guard and Reserve. Each one of them dared to take the oath of service, and now they are a valuable part of the CHANNELLOCK® family.
Channellock, Inc. associate veterans include:
Rick Ayers, Becki Baird, Dan Barickman, Dave Beck, Scott Beil, Terry Bowersox, Dan Cochran, Jimmy Coleman, Denny Cox, Paul Edmondson, Dave Gibbons, Dan Gravatt, Damon Grove, Nathan Hall, Chris Hoepfl, Ross Kareha, Joshua Keach, Tyler Kitch, Brian Labanowski, Richard Littlefield, Steve Litwiler, Jeff Mackiewicz, Charlotte McCauley, Ted Moyers, Charles Potter, Ernie Renner, Russ Reynolds, Richard Rice, Bryan Riddle, Adam Rodgers, Bryan Smith, Don Socha, Robert Stine, Larry Stirling, Dave Tepe, Bill Thompson, Joshua Wagner, Doug Weber and Bill Wotherspoon.
CHANNELLOCK® would like thank all those who have served. How will you thank a veteran this Veterans Day?
