45 Years of Success

Current and past Technidyne Corporation employees gathered yesterday to celebrate 45 years of success. Several retired Technidyne veterans joined the current team to reminisce, eat (which we love to do) and play some games. Team members from our past included former finance, sales, engineering and purchasing employees.

One former employee, Jim Ludwig, goes back into Technidyne history as far back as being in Jerry (founder) and Helen Popson's wedding. He also held positions in Production and Purchasing until retiring as Purchasing Manager in 2003.

Retirees Jim Ludwig, Joyce Harris, Nan Malthouse, Dave Malthouse, Carol Guidry and Mike Guidry at the Anniversary Luncheon.

Current CEO and President, Todd Popson, had some trivia questions for the employees in attendance. One Technidyne trivia question, was how many instruments Technidyne has manufactured in its history. The answer, 6,185!
