60 years at ACF – see his original work badge

Yesterday, I got to talk with a man who has worked at ACF in Milton FOR 60 YEARS.

Bill Yost certainly wins the company loyalty award in my book. And in a cool bonus, he said he was looking around and found his original badge from the company from when he started in 1953.

Take a look:

I think that’s so cool – a unique piece of history that for many has faded into the background. But for Bill Yost’s family, they’ll forever have this important piece of him with them.

It’s also neat to think that the 19-year-old kid in this photo had no idea that he would be in the same place 60 years later – only a lot more successful and a lot more knowledgeable.

Congrats to Bill! You’ve earned your place in ACF history!

Gov. Corbett at ACF: Touring a factory with the governor

Yesterday, I got to tour the newly reopened ACF factory during Governor Tom Corbett’s visit. It was a gorgeous day outside for his speech and tour.

Some reporters don’t like the “politician tours a business/factory” stories. Me, I love them.

The tours are an interesting look into a business you might not normally get, while you get to have some interaction with some of the most influential people in the state/nation.

Everyone’s happy to be there and talk to you and get photos, so it’s a win/win for everyone.

So Here’s a pictoral journey through my ACF tour with Corbett with commentary.
