Amanda Kole / Monday, December 19, 2016 / Categories: WireMasters News, Holiday Merry Christmas From the WireMasters Family to Yours! Christmas is in full swing around WireMasters! We recently hosted our annual Christmas Party where our employees participated and demonstrated their uniqueness in our Tacky Christmas Sweater Contest! As you can see from the photos it was quite the contest, but Britany Warner (1st place), Joseph Patterson (2nd Place), and Ramon Maxwell (not pictured) took home the winning ribbons! An exciting part of our yearly Christmas Party is the announcement of the WireMasters awards. Each year various WireMasters employees are chosen for their immaculate sales, talent, and performance over the last year. We would like to take this opportunity and congratulate each of our 2016 WireMasters Award winners and we thank you for your hard work and dedication over the last year. Three of the top awards given are the Employee of the Year Award, The President’s Award and The Eagle Award. The Employee of the Year is voted on by fellow WireMasters employees, and this year’s recipient was the very deserved Jerry Faulkner. Jerry serves as our Plant Maintenance Manager and has been with the WireMasters family for 23 years. We thank Jerry for his continuous hard work and commitment to this company. Jimmy Ballard was chosen by WireMasters President and CEO, David C. Hill for the 2016 Presidents Award. Jimmy joined the team this year as our Central Mexico Site Manager and has performed exceptionally since. We send our greatest thanks to Jimmy for his dedication to making our new facility a great success. The top sales honors, The Eagle Award and Level 14 Sales Club, was awarded to our Senior Account Executive, Jeff Wood. Serving on the WireMasters team for 18 years, Jeff has continually shined as a top executive. See all the WireMasters Award winners by CLICKING HERE . We have a new member of the WireMasters Christmas Family this year with our Elf on the Warehouse Shelf,Mr. Willie the Wired Elf! He has been busy this season helping package up our customer's wire and cable orders while helping re-spool the wiring products, and he was even helping laser mark your wire and then placing them in the custom kits! Oh, and we can’t forget when we caught him dreaming of candy canes in the value-added department. He’s quite the character and has been a huge help during the Christmas Season! We hear he has given us a wonderful report back to Santa too and good news, we made the nice list this year! Keep up with what Willied the Wired Elf is into on our social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+) We thank everyone who has made the year 2016 a great success for WireMasters! The year has been full of achievements and excitement for our team! From attending 3 European trade shows, getting to meet Apollo 15 pilot Al Worden, breaking ground on our new Arizona facility (CLICK HERE for updates), the recent addition of our WireMasters Mexico facility, adding a TE 3112 Label Printer to Value Added Department, and receiving a Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award. 2016 was nothing short of amazing and we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for us! A friendly reminder that in honor of Christmas we will be closed December 23rd through December 26th and will reopen December 27th. We will also be closed December 30th through January 2nd in honor of New Years and will reopen January 3rd. We appreciate your corporation during our holiday hours. Merry Christmas from the WireMasters family to yours! We hope each of you has a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
