Three Honored For Tenure At A.D. Moyer

Gilbertsville – Three employees of A.D. Moyer Lumber were recently recognized for their many years of service to the company. Owners Scott and Terry Moyer presented gifts and accolades to Bonnie Kuser, Dale Colgan, and Laverne Henry at a holiday dinner attended by more than 80 employees and their guests.

All three received prepaid travel vouchers on behalf of the owners. Terry Moyer noted that the giving of vacations has been a tradition set long ago by his father, the late Francis Moyer who was the son of company founder Amandus Moyer. Terry Moyer reflected to the crowd how his father stressed the importance of promoting family values to their employees. Because rewarding the employees with travel vouchers encourages the employee to spend time with their spouse and family, the tradition continues to be the preferred method of recognition among the Moyers.

Kuser, the sister of co-owner Scott Moyer, has spent her entire tenure in the accounting department operating out of the headquarters in Gilbertsville. Kuser handles payroll duties for the company as well as other accounting tasks.

Colgan, Hardware manager, also spends time in sales. In his 25 years he has served in both the Pottstown and Gilbertsville locations and was instrumental in setting up the hardware department at the Douglassville location when it opened in 1995.

The milestone achievement by Kuser and Colgan increases to six the number still actively employed by the company who have surpassed 25 years of service.

Henry, who is completing his 30th year of service with A.D. Moyer, also received a gold watch marking his scheduled retirement. Many humorous and emotional memories were shared when Henry took the microphone. Citing the multitude of experiences that he has gained over the years by working in nearly every department of the company, Henry stated that he truly enjoyed being able to help so many customers and will miss the people with whom he worked.

Scott and Terry Moyer strongly expressed the value of the flexibility and loyalty that all three have continuously exhibited in the family owned business, crediting the employee’s tenacity and leadership for the growth of the company over the years.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the success of A.D. Moyer is due to the quality of people that we have working here,” said Scott. “ I consider them second to none. “

The late Amandus D. Moyer founded A.D. Moyer Lumber & Hardware in Gilbertsville in 1939 selling used lumber from the Sanatoga Roller coaster. A.D. Moyer currently employs over 90 full and part-time employees in it’s Gilbertsville, Pottstown, and Douglassville locations.
