Winnebago Employee Celebrates 50 Years of Service to the Company
Tom Halvorson Becomes 8th Person to Achieve This Milestone
Winnebago employee Tom Halvorson recently reached a significant milestone with the company. A few weeks back, he passed the 50th anniversary of his hiring, becoming the 8th person in Winnebago’s 64-year history to achieve that distinction.
Halvorson was hired as a mechanic in May of 1972 but soon transferred into the company’s machine shop. His job evolved into creating tools and fixtures used in the production of Winnebago RVs, helping to refine the manufacturing process. Five decades later, he continues working in that role to this day.
“We are very pleased to recognize and congratulate Tom for his dedication and commitment to Winnebago Industries and specifically our Winnebago Motorhome team throughout his 50 years of service,” President of Winnebago Outdoors Huw Bower said in a press release. “Tom’s contributions and service are commendable, and we are thrilled to welcome him into our honored circle of 50-year employees.”
The other Winnebago employees who have earned this honor for longevity include Harlan Rodberg (Winnebago Motorhomes), Larry Kearney (Winnebago Motorhomes), Devon Miller (Newmar Corporation), Glenn Blaser (Winnebago Motorhomes), Merle Aanrud (Winnebago Motorhomes), Virginia Hauge (Winnebago Motorhomes) and Daniel Van Note (Winnebago Motorhomes).
The press release announcing Halvorsan’s achievement says that he enjoys outdoor activities and spending time at his lakeside cabin when not working. He also likes to travel in his two Winnebago RVs with friends and family.
Congratulations to Tom Halvorson on reaching this amazing career milestone.
