Employees Who Exceed Expectations

Team 2017

Companies are only as good as the people who work in them – employees who care about both their jobs and the company, as well as the quality and performance of the products they make.

At Casco, we have a program called Exceeds Expectations which recognizes employees who go above and beyond to make this company better than any other company. It is through their exemplary efforts and performance that Casco is considered a company where the product is always made correctly, on time, and by the best employees who provide the best outcomes for our customers.

In 2016, 30 awards were given to 17 employees, of whom 7 are pictured. Six of these employees received their third award in 2016, which earns them a gift on behalf of the company.

Congratulations to all of them.
