Kuehne Company’s Annual Picnic
The Kuehne Company’s annual picnic was held on August 17, 2019, at Lums Pond State Park in Delaware. Kuehne employees, friends and family continued the celebration of our 100-year anniversary by enjoying great food, comradery and fun – a large moon bounce and slide for the children was a popular attraction! Tee shirts were given to all, and this year’s shirt might just be a collector’s item as it has the Kuehne 100 year logo.
A big Thank You to all the folks who worked so hard to make this event a success!
Paul Taubler, Manager of Regulatory Affairs, retired after 25 years with Kuehne. Paul was instrumental in maintaining our relationships with the Federal, State and Local agencies and keeping Kuehne in compliance with the plethora of evolving regulatory changes. Paul was a key figure in the growth of Kuehne’s transportation fleets, and especially in the barging operations where Kuehne maintained three vessels for movements associated with sodium hypochlorite, caustic soda and castor oil. Paul is pictured on the left being presented a picture of the CASOH barge, and an aerial photo of the expanded South Kearny, New Jersey plant by Co President Rich Wilkes. The photos are surrounded by the signatures and best wishes of various Kuehne employees.
A retirement luncheon was held on July 10th surrounded by some of Paul’s coworkers. Those who attended the luncheon enjoyed a great meal, fellowship, shared stories of days past, and presented Paul with some parting gifts.
On behalf of all Kuehne employees, we wish Paul the best and a healthy and happy retirement.
Kuehne Company Day of Service 2019
On June 28, 2019, we continued our 100-year celebration activities by having a day of service at our South Kearny facility. Our Delaware facility has an event planned with their personnel as well. During one of our committee meetings, Luis Mancebo suggested giving back to our troops
by preparing care packages to send to our deployed troops. Throughout June, a collection of items donated by generous employees were combined with additional items purchased by Kuehne to assemble these care packages. During the day of service, we had various employees from all of our departments lend a helping hand. Items were sorted out and separated, and before we knew it, we had an assembly line running smoothly. In just a few hours, one hundred care packages were prepped and readied to ship to our troops! A big thank you to all of our volunteers who, from start to finish, worked together. Without each of you, this would not have been possible.
