Bobby Hart Retires After 44 Years at BillcoDecember 21st, 2018 by Editor
Officials for Billco have announced that Bobby Hart has retired from the company, after 44 years in the industry. Hart started at the company the day after his 18th birthday and did general labor in the shop—running errands, sweeping floors or doing whatever it was that was needed, his peers say.
Hart recalls that he started at the wage of $3.12 per hour. After about a year of doing general labor, he then moved into assembly, where he spent his entire career with the company. Over the course of Billco’s 70-year lifespan, Hart has seen, built and witnessed many historical events, representatives for the company say.
“It is his attention to quality that he will be remembered by,” a company statement says. “He’s trained many people at Billco and trained them well, according to many. Although he is looking forward to his retirement, he will miss his friends, noting that many of them are closer than family to him.”
Hart says he will likely find a part-time position doing something else that he enjoys.
“Bobby Hart is a part of Billco as much as Billco is a part of him,” the statement suggests. “We are honored that he chose to spend his career at Billco and wish him all the best in his retirement.”
