Sad to see an old company close its doors on the employees who worked with love and dedication for so many years.
The last 2 years or so there has been no management at the plant. Todd, Lawanda ,and Kelly ran a gimmick as if the plant was there own.
Hobart fired and got rid of employees who had been with them for 20 to 30 years, in the process losing valuable experience.
Temp workers save a company money on the bottom line but quality always suffers. As is the case here.
Todd B. never fully grasped the fast paced competitive market that exists today. Kelly G was a farce who only hung on because of cronyism and a need to be "in charge". Kelly never received the respect of employees who had been with Hobart for decades as a result.
Hobart failed to right the ship and sadly this is the result.

Our management over the years has been absent. Todd came to power through a coup with his uncle,then got rid of anyone who could take the position from him. Lawanda and the office bunch did everything to benefit them and not the employees like me who made the business run all the years. Jimmy D knew this and left before the end..Me and Chop made it happen to keep the plant up all of the years without Todds help! Todd had affairs with the temp women who came and went.(asian lady ring a bell todd?)
Kelly G was never qualified to be in charge and had no clue what he was doing, just because he had a Strayer U degree he thinks he's educated well he's a uncle tom to Todd B. Kelly is a has been and won't make it at a real company.
ITW was the end of Hobart as we know it....ITW has no idea what really has gone on at the Richmond Hill location....
