Christmas is a time that brings people together and that was certainly the case this past week at our Rockland and Monon locations. There were meals, community parades and neighborhood tree-lighting events that kept the Rockland team busy serving others.
Last week, we had the opportunity to celebrate the retirement of two friends and co-workers at our West Lorne, Ontario location.
Henry Bens has been with Rockland Flooring for 29 years with the majority of those serving as General Manager. Henry has provided exceptional leadership to the team at West Lorne and we’ve always admired his calm and steady demeanor, regardless of the circumstances.
Angie Smith started with Rockland Flooring 18 years ago in the accounting department later rising to the role of Accounting Manager. Angie had a passion for detail and excellence in everything she did. She was a beacon of light and optimism for those who were fortunate enough to work with her.
Henry and Angie have been instrumental in the growth and success of Rockland Flooring and always operated with a high degree of professionalism and integrity.
Well done and thank you from all of your teammates at Rockland Flooring. You will be missed.
We love the Thanksgiving spirit at our Wisconsin plant. Turkeys for everyone! We are indeed thankful for every team member at Rockland Flooring and their commitment to excellence.
November 21, 2022 – Rockland Flooring recently attended Great Dane’s Annual Supplier Conference in Savannah, GA and was awarded the 2022 Great Dane Quality Award. Rockland Flooring is the only supplier to win this award twice and the only supplier to receive a perfect customer service score from each of the six Great Dane dry van plants it serves. Rockland also received the Great Dane’s Quality Award in 2021.
Chris Wolford, Chief Sales Officer, added “It’s just incredible to be recognized for such a high level of quality and service. It’s validation that the work we do matters and is appreciated by our partners like Great Dane.”
It was great to have DeLovely’s Donut truck on site for our Rockland, WI team. It’s hard to beat a donut and hot coffee on a cold Wisconsin morning. We appreciate all of the amazing work they do each and every day to make sure our customers are taken care of.
A special thanks to our team in Rockland, WI who invested both their time and money to support a great cause in their community. As always, this group does it with passion and a smile. Well done team Rockland!
On July 6, 2022 we celebrated Don Heeney’s retirement after 25 years with Rockland Flooring. The company supplied meals for the first and second shifts to commemorate this special day.
Don has been instrumental in the success of our West Lorne facility having worked in all departments at some point during his tenure. His work ethic and leadership will certainly be missed but we wish him the best in retirement.
Thank you Don for your unwavering commitment to Rockland Flooring and to our customers.
Rockland Flooring is proud to be a part of the communities we live, work and call home.
