It’s remarkable to think that Wayne Menne applied for a job with us over 50 years ago, but we are so happy he did! At the young age of 17, Wayne walked through our doors and took a job that turned into a career. Today, when people change jobs more often than they update their cell phone carrier, we are so happy to mark this milestone, and celebrate Wayne’s 50 years of loyal service with Drug Package, LLC.
Hired in the shipping room to pack orders, Wayne then moved to the Bindery Department to cut stock for the presses on the guillotine cutter. From there he moved to the Prep Department to perform layout work for the offset presses. He then returned to the Bindery Department to run the collator, and then moved to the leather press area to run a Miehle press. In 1979 he went to the Flexo Department to run a 5 color Manhasset press and stayed there for 10 years. He spent the next 14 years running the Didde presses in the Offset Department. Then in 2003, he moved back to the Flexo Department to run the Aqua Flex. Wayne has been a supervisor on the night shift for over 20 years.
Wayne likes working here because he’s never missed a paycheck in 50 years!!!
“Right after I started in the shipping room, a co-worker sent me to the maintenance dept to find a box stretcher, that didn’t exist. This was a tradition to send new people to the maintenance dept to ask the supervisor for a box stretcher. It didn’t sound right but what did I know at 17 years old,” said Wayne
We congratulate Wayne on his success, and are so grateful for 50 years of dedicated service he has provided to our company. Thank you Wayne — we are looking forward to the next 50 years!
