Steve Krzes has worked for Fitzpatrick & Weller, Inc. since February, 1972. A family owned business since 1895, Fitzpatrick & Weller takes pride that we have many long time employees. But 38 years of service is incredible and we congratulate Steve on all of his achievements. Steve says, “He appreciates the opportunities that have been presented to him”.
Many changes in machinery, technology, yield management, the world market and now the difficult economy have presented both challenges and opportunities for Steve.
