Employee Milestones (Summer 2016)

Tommy Gate would like to acknowledge some of its many outstanding team members.

Tommy Gate is extremely proud of (and grateful for) the many wonderful men and women who work hard day in and day out to produce the best hydraulic liftgates in the world. Over the past year Tommy Gate has been highlighting some notable employee milestones on its official facebook page and would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge them here as well.

Brian Bak, Tuckunder Assembler - August 2015, 10 years

Brian is an extremely talented and detail oriented member of the Tommy Gate team. His assembly output is unmatched and he can be moved (and he often is) to any product line and be trusted to do the job correctly. Brian also spent a lot of time with engineering on the very first Tuckunder prototypes and had a hand in making that lift as good as it could be. On top of all that, Brian is smiling all the time. Thanks, Brian!

He is a family man with a son and a daughter and two of his brothers also work at the Woodbine, Iowa plant. He is a highly regarded member of the Tommy Gate team. Thank you, Joey.
