2019 Bring your Kids to Work Day
On Thursday, April 25th, Kuehne Company NJ hosted approximately 16 children of employees at its Plant in Kearny NJ, as part of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This event allows kids to not only job shadow their parents in the workplace, including office, laboratory and manufacturing settings, but also to participate in interactive Science, Admin, and Production activities.
“We hope that the kids will get a real-world understanding of the work that Kuehne Chemical does as a company and that it will fuel a passion for the manufacturing industry,” said Viviana Mendez, Director Human Resources and organizer of the event.

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.
