Yesterday was special but bittersweet. We honored Rick (Rit) Gdovin, Sr. before his retirement after 22 years with Horst Engineering in our thread rolling operation, and 20 more with Egan Machine; a company we acquired in 1995.
Pictured L-R: Steven Livingston, Rick Gdovin, Jr., Rick Gdovin, Sr., Stanley Livingston, Scott Livingston, and Adeline Livingston.
You don’t replace 42 years of skill, but Rit left a legacy at our 71-year-old #familybusiness as many others before him have. He went home with a custom Gerstner and Sons machinist chest that was made in Ohio, by another multi-generation family business.
