On October 19th, a group of our employees braved the rain and dedicated their weekend to helping American Zinc Products (AZP) sponsor the Liver Mush Festival in Shelby, North Carolina. This was the second year in a row that AZP sponsored this signature Shelby event. It is important to us because we consider AZP to be a part of their community as we are just a short 30-minute drive away from Cleveland County. Many of our employees are long-time, local residents and we anticipate that more will join our team as we continue to gear up towards being fully operational!
“It was really good spending time outside of work with the team.”
– Kobus de Wet, Technical Manager
The headline for the event, “Mush, Music, and Mutts,” was right on the money. Aili Wilen, our Environmental Manager, especially loved seeing all the pups dressed to compete in the costume contest. We enjoyed treating ourselves, some for the first time, to both Mack’s and Frank Corriher’s liver mush sandwiches. Handing out free goodies and giving back to local communities was a great way to bond with our team. Lastly, but definitely not least, we loved networking with the attendees of the festival and spreading the word that we are hiring! Coincidently, we were even able to meet and chat with a few candidates who had just started the applying process.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered or came out to visit with us! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
