A company is only as good as the people it employs; great products and service don’t exist without great people.
At Pentaflex, we know this well—and we’re more than a little proud of the 100+ team members who have made us who we are. We like to celebrate them all, individually and as a group.
Recently, we chose to celebrate the contributions extraordinary women make and have made to our company and our industry.
This is why we recently sponsored the Springfield Foundation’s Extraordinary Women’s luncheon. This event was organized by the Women’s Partnership Fund, an affiliate of the Springfield Foundation.
Chairwoman of the Partnership Fund, Cathy Crompton called it an “uplifting, powerful event.” Over 300 guests attended the luncheon to celebrate the hard work and commitment of women and their invaluable contribution to the community.
It was also a chance to focus on the importance of encouraging young women to pursue personal and professional success in any field that interests them, regardless of traditional gender roles, stereotypes, or norms. The message was certainly clear- young women should be encouraged to fulfill their dreams regardless of cultural stereotypes. After all, there are many opportunities out there in fields that are not “typically” filled with females—including manufacturing—and there’s no reason why more women can’t benefit from them.
In attendance from Pentaflex were David Arndt, our President, Julie McGregor, our owner, Ross McGregor, Executive Vice President, and Debbie Kidd, our accounting whiz, and Laura Ark, Customer Service representative. Each thrilled and delighted to celebrate the cause and message on which Pentaflex embraces.
Everyone who makes Pentaflex so successful is indeed extraordinary. The women who make us and our community so great are certainly no exception, and it was an honor to celebrate them.
