On August 15th, Charles Remied proudly celebrated his 50th anniversary with SERFILCO, Ltd. located in Northbrook, IL.
Remied started his illustrious career manufacturing some of SERFILCO’s first pumps and filtration systems. He spent the first 12 years primarily in manufacturing and product development. Then, in 1974, Jack Berg, the iconic founder of SERFILCO, suggested that Charles start making sales calls on the metal finishing shops in the Chicago area. And as they say, “The rest is history."
Charles has spent the last 40 years calling on thousands of metal finishing, machine tool and printed circuit board manufacturers, sharing his product knowledge and assisting clients with difficult filtration and pumping applications. He has been an active member and officer on numerous trade organizations, both local and national. A tireless member of trade show, golf outing and special events committees, Charles has always been willing to assist in planning the next “great” event.
Mr. Remied will continue as Special Projects Manager, sharing his expertise with his fellow SERFILCO employees and the surface finishing industry. He has been, and will continue to be, a great asset to the company and the industry that he has so devotedly served for the last 50 years, a company press release stated.
