CAMBRIDGE — Cambridge International, one of the Mid-Shore’s largest employers, held an employee service recognition banquet Feb. 6 at Jimmy and Sooks to honor 22 associates whose loyalty and careers have withstood the test of time, reaching 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40-year anniversaries. Awardees included three Dorchester County residents who reached 40-year milestones. (View a slide show of the recipients at the bottom of this page)
“We are proud to have so many talented and committed people who have been loyal to us for many years,” said Tracy Tyler, Cambridge CEO. “Our company thrives thanks to the ingenuity and experience of our associates and their enthusiasm for creating world-class products and services for our customers.” Cambridge also continued its tradition of honoring employees who reached these employment milestones at its Annual Service Awards Breakfast. Ms. Tyler, along with company COO Tom Ross and Human Resource Director Heather Hillaert, recognized the service awardees at an all-employee event at the company’s headquarters Feb. 10. The three honorees with 40 years of service are local men who have spent their careers as metal craftsmen in the company’s plant operations. Glenn Brannock of East New Market and Gary Dibble of Cambridge began working as welders in 1974. Jimmy Gambrill, also of Cambridge, started his 40-year career as a metal fabricator. “There are few things more valuable than time and talent: Glenn, Gary and Jimmy have given generously of both,” said Ms. Tyler. “Their dedication and expertise are part of Cambridge’s biggest asset and greatest resource – our people.” When Mr. Brannock, Mr. Dibble and Mr. Gambrill began working for the company in 1974, the U.S. was in political turmoil as Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, Barbra Streisand’s “The Way We Were” topped the Billboard Music chart, and Hank Aaron snapped Babe Ruth’s home run record. The three have remained through changes within the company, including the 1998 merger of Cambridge Wire Cloth and Maryland Wire Belts that formed today’s Cambridge International.
