In early June, Thom Ketterer was honored at a retirement luncheon at Ellwood City Forge.  Thom had 43 years of service with ECF and was a valued employee.  At his luncheon, Thom was presented with a replica of a frac block by Elvy Kirkham, Director of Sales, a reminder of his oil and gas market experiences.

Thom began his career in 1973 at Ellwood City Forge in the shop as a laborer.  In 1988, he was promoted to Manager of Manufacturing Engineering.  Since 2001, Thom has been a Product Specialist with the Sales group, specializing in ECF’s oil & gas business. Thom’s dedication and extensive knowledge of ECF and the oil and gas industry will be missed.

We wish Thom all the best in his retirement!
