Watervliet, NY — Flexco Manufacturing paid tribute to Troy Belting & Supply Company on their 100th anniversary as the distributor for Flexco’s lacing and belt maintenance products. In continuous operation since 1862, Troy Belting & Supply Company has partnered with Flexco since 1909, a mere two years after Flexco’s founding in 1907. To celebrate their long-standing and unique business relationship, Flexco President Richard A. White presented an elegant Howard Miller grandfather clock to Karen E. Smith, President of Troy Belting.
Troy Belting & Supply President Karen E. Smith commented, “We are proud of our long and successful history with Flexco and are honored to receive this beautiful gift of appreciation. We have a strong and grounded partnership with Flexco, whom we consider to be an extension of our family here at Troy Belting. We are grateful for their dedicated support over these 100 years, and we look forward to continuing this relationship for future generations in both our companies. This celebration is proof that companies who share strong values and provide quality services will stand the test of time.”
“The fact that the business relationship between Flexco and Troy Belting has endured successfully for 100 years, says a great deal about the management of both companies over the past century,” said Flexco President and CEO Richard White. “Fortunately, those responsible for leading our respective organizations possessed both the vision and integrity to appreciate the value generated from long-term business relationships. Without these relationships, Flexco would not be where we are today.”
