2nd Annual Stanley P. Bitel Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament

 

On June 12th, 2017, Rowley Spring & Stamping held the 2nd Annual Stanley P. Bitel Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament at Pequabuck Golf Club to honor Stanley, who not only founded our company in 1954, but was also our dear friend. We hope everybody had a great time, and we would like to thank everyone who played, volunteered, donated, and sponsored the event and helped make our second tournament a huge success! Click here to view this year’s program and to see all of our donors and sponsors that made this event possible. We would like to give a very special thank you to United Bank and Bucom International for being our gold sponsors!

All proceeds from the event went directly to the Stanley P. Bitel Memorial Scholarship Fund that is provided through the Main Street Community Foundation, and we were able to raise over $9,500! We would also like to congratulate this year’s scholarship recipient, Natallie Jesionka, and wish her good luck with all her future endeavors!

Team Day 2016

On October 14th 2016, Rowley Spring and Stamping celebrated our annual Team Day. We always like to use this day to thank all of our hard-working employees for everything they have done to help bring Rowley Spring and Stamping to where it is today. We started the day with a meeting to discuss how business has been. We highlight the positives, but also pay careful attention to areas in which we can improve.

After our meeting, five teams of five volunteered for this year’s carnival themed competition, and everyone else got to cheer them on! Each team had its members compete one at a time in several games: ring toss, bean bag toss, duck toss (similar to lawn darts), ping pong bounce, and a water gun game. Each game had its own scoring method, and the two teams with the highest number of points in the end won prizes! After the competition was over, everyone was allowed to take part in the fun and play games for tickets that could be traded in for carnival prizes like stuffed animals, candy, inflatable bats, and even a beta fish for lucky ring toss winners!

After having a great time with each other and playing the games, we went inside for a prize raffle for even more amazing prizes! Rowley would like to thank all of our competition volunteers and workers, caterers, and everyone who was able to make our team day possible!

A New Year for Rowley Spring and Stamping

As 2015 draws to a close and we look to the new year of 2016, it is important to look back to see how far we have come. It has been an amazing year for Rowley Spring and Stamping! Although manufacturing as a whole has experienced a bit of a set-back recently, Rowley has continued to move forward by gaining new customers and accelerating our rate of quoting parts. 2015 certainly had its challenges, but they have made the Rowley Team stronger than ever, and we are ready to take on the next year! We would like to say thank you to all of our customers for your continued support. With several new projects already in the making, 2016 looks to be an exciting year! Rowley Spring and Stamping hopes you have a safe and happy new year!

A Refurbishing of Rowley

Since Rowley Spring and Stamping has been in business of over 60 years, we felt it was time to upgrade a few things around the factory. Our first improvement was making our signs more modern and up-to-date. As we continue to grow, we hope to improve and remodel many aspects of our building in order for our business to stay on top!

Remembering our Veterans

Rowley Spring and Stamping would like to say thank you to all of our veterans for everything they have done for us and our country. We are honored to have veterans work with us and continue to employ and support them today. We have updated this display near our main entrance to honor and thank older veterans who have worked at Rowley for a long time and also to thank our younger veterans!

Each Veteran’s Day, the country takes a moment to thank our troops for their commitment and dedication to protecting our beloved nation. Rowley Spring and Stamping would like to thank our veterans for their service and the sacrifices they have made for the United States. Here is a list of the seven members of our staff who are veterans:

Thank you!
