Today’s story is about one of our own heading off into his retirement. We have been in business for 51 years and Roger Martens has spent 40 years 11 months with us here at Evans Equipment.
He has been a significant part of our company growth during his tenure. He has worn a lot of hats and dipped his hands into whatever was needed of him. He drafted our 10,000 gallon water tanker and oversaw the welding process. He ordered all our Cat parts so we could rebuild our machines to the high standard our customers have grown accustomed to. He oversaw the guys in the shop and tracked the progress on every rebuild. Our next parts manager certainly has some big shoes to fill.
As he retires today, we are having a catered lunch to show how extremely grateful we are for all his hard work. We wish him and his wife Lois all the best in the happy years ahead.
