    Post Warner and Swasey Factory - 2019

    Mr. Richard Shively and Mr. Roger Bitner hired me to work in Engineering at W/S in 1971. My debt, especially to Roger, is immeasurable. It would really trouble them to see what became of one the best places to work in Cleveland back in the day.

    All because of greed. Allied Signal purchased W&S and tore us apart. The Gradall div. is still in business as their Mrg. purchased the div.

    I started in 1962 as a Reg. Apprentice and was still a employee when they went on the NY stock market which was the death of W&S due to greed.

    So sad as W&S was still a very good and profitable company.
