Posted by Marion Body Works

(August 3, 2016)

Arnie Piotraschke worked at Marion Body Works from 1959, until he retired in 2009. Last Friday, Arnie brought his extended family to tour the new facility. 15 of those family members were visiting from Germany for a family reunion. Through translation, they were able to hear and see where Arnie spent 50 years of service. Our President Curt Ignacio, and Pat Flannery gave the tours, and spent time walking the family through the history of MBW. 

We at Marion want to thank Arnie for his many years of dedicated service.
