The bigwigs came from as far away as Denmark when hundreds of Wheelabrator 200 employees and guests gathered together last month to mark a special event: one million hours without a lost time incident.

The manufacturer of wheel-type shot blast machines, mass finishing equipment, and automated airblast solutions has customers in nearly 100 countries and serves companies in the foundry, automotive, aerospace, energy, marine, rail, construction and other industries.

Featured speakers at the safety luncheon included Robert E. Joyce, President & CEO of Norican Group (parent company of Wheelabrator and DISA); Poul Erik Arre, Director of HS&E, Norican Group from Denmark; Pierre Tanguay, VP Supply Chain, Wheelabrator Group; Judith Carr, Member of Chairman’s Board Georgia State Board Workers Compensation; Jim Thornton, Mayor City of LaGrange; and Kathleen Parsloe, CPCU, ARM Senior VP Marsh USA, Inc. 

Joyce congratulated the team on an accomplishment no other group in the Norican Company has achieved.

A leading surface preparation company, Wheelabrator offers customers a complete range of equipment, services and parts.
