A lot happens over 45 years. New ownership, a new name and a new building at a new location, David Vigar has seen it all since he stepped into Wabash Paper Coating on June 5, 1970, for his first day of work.
The company, now Miami-Wabash Paper, commemorated Vigar’s longtime service Monday, June 8, by presenting him with a plaque and a check.
Daryl Evans, Vice President and General Manager of Miami-Wabash Paper, said he thinks its unheard of for someone to work one job since graduating high school like Vigar. He said Vigar’s knowledge, efficiency and dependability in the workplace have made him enjoyable to work with.
“People like him just don’t miss work because they’ve got a runny nose,” Evans said.
