Johns Manville Tucson Plant Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Employees at JM’s plant in Tucson, Arizona, recently celebrated 50 years of making parts used in the company's fiberglass production.   
With a luncheon attended by President and CEO Bob Wamboldt, IS President Greg Clarke and EP President John Vasuta and Marana, Arizona Mayor Ed Honea, about 100 employees – including returning retirees – reflected on the plant’s history and contributions.  
“The 50-year history of this plant is made up of many great people that have worked here and the friendships that are made as we work together for success of the plant,” said Plant Manager Mike Taggart.  
He said plant employees enjoyed and appreciated the visit from Wamboldt, Clarke and Vasuta to mark the occasion.  
“The employees enjoyed showing Bob, Greg and John the areas they work in every day,” Taggart said. “The team felt recognized by each of them.” 
He said the event was a rewarding opportunity to mark a significant milestone for the plant and celebrate the people who helped make it happen. 
“It was a great opportunity to recognize our employees for the work they do. We were also able to recognize several recent retirees who contributed to more than 25 years at the plant,” Taggart said.  
“We are proud to be the heart of Johns Manville fiberglass in North America. It was important to not only recognize the employees’ contributions to the Tucson plant but to the success of many other plants across Johns Manville,” he added.
