Cox Mfg partnered with a local winery to celebrate a key employee's milestone.
Cox Manufacturing has partnered with local company Stray Grape Urban Winery to produce and package wine in celebration of the year's end. A group of ten Cox employees worked with Stray Grape to bottle this year's wine, a Sonoma cabernet. The process included the cleaning, filling, corking, and labeling of the bottles. Employees were also invited to sample the wine being bottled. Cox has previously worked with Stray Grape to make and bottle wine for Cox Mfg's 60th anniversary in 2016.
This year's labels were revealed to be celebratory labels in recognition of Vice President of Sales and Business Development Art Raynes' 30 years of employment at Cox Manufacturing.
"Cheers to 30 Years of Service" - Vice President Art Raynes' milestone wine bottle, "In Recognition of Employees that Continue to Embody Our Three Core Values: Teamwork, Perseverance, and Continuous Improvement".
We appreciate your hard work, dedication, and leadership skills that contribute to your role as Vice President of Sales.
