Piro Celebrates 20 Years

Piro Celebrates 20 Years

20th Anniversary Celebration


Piro, our chief roll mill operator and resident machine expert celebrated his 20th anniversary today.

Fortune smiled on him the day he met our owner.  At the time, Piro was working 95 hours at 3 jobs,  

to make ends meet.  Shortly after this chance meeting and with encouragement from

our owner, our Production Manager brought Piro on board at Dalton. 


20 years later, Piro, a man with a strong sense of duty to family, work and community continues to take

charge here and at home.  His two grown children are now university educated and out on their own.

Within the Albanian community, Piro has lent a helping hand in bringing many new employees to Dalton.

At Dalton, Piro quickly learned new operations and took on various rolls in Dalton production. 

When a new roll mill was purchased, it was Piro who stepped up to become lead

operator.  We are incredibly proud of and honored to award this hard working employee on his

20th anniversary.  We are blessed to have Piro on our team.
