This Friday, January 30, an Ohio man will mark one amazing career milestone.
Mansfield Plumbing employee Ron Kline will celebrate 50 years with the same company and with a perfect attendance record.
Kline has been working for Mansfield Plumbing since January 30, 1965, when he was hired as a clean-up person at the manufacturing facility in Perrysville.
The father of 11 and grandfather of 38 says he loves his job and has not thoughts of retiring.
"This company has been a great place to have a career and it's been good to my entire family," says Kline, "Right now my son Jeff and my daughter Julie are both working at Mansfield, along with my brother, Elmer. Two other brothers, Richard and Jerry, recently retired from the company. Together the Kline family has about 220 combined years of service at Mansfield."
Kline spent the first 18 years with Mansfield Plumbing as an inspector/grader of sanitaryware products.
He started driving a truck 32 years ago, and says he has made deliveries to every state east of the Mississippi River.
