Local company celebrates no lost-time accidents



A Seymour company that remanufactures locomotive components recently celebrated five years without a lost-time accident.

That company, EngineAir, is owned by Jack Matthews, according to a news release from the company.

EngineAir has been in operation for more than 20 years.

As a reward to all the employees, management treated everyone to lunch at a local restaurant, gave them shirts commemorating the achievement and let all employees leave after lunch with pay.

The safety recognition program was initiated by

quality manager Jim Schluckbier shortly after he started with the company in 2007.

President Bill Stevens said, “The achievement is a testament to the dedication to safety shared by all of the employees as well as a focus on training from the shop supervisor Adam Webb to the line foremen, Tyler Jones and Steven Barger, along with regular employee meetings helps to keep everyone safe.”
