Spruance Celebrates Tyvek®'s 40th Anniversary

Employees, family members, guests celebrate Tyvek®'s 40th Anniversary

Approximately 400 employees, their family members and guests didn't let rain stop them from enjoying the recent two-day celebration of the Tyvek® business's 40th anniversary of commercial production.  The Anniversary festivities included an open house event in which employees could tour their family members through their work areas, with plenty of refreshments, games, product displays and a variety of giveaway items.  In addition to the manufacturing tours and historical items that were on display, perhaps the biggest highlights of the event was a Jeff Gordon #24 racing simulator and a real #24 car that grabbed everyone's attention from the noise it made when it was started up!
