Fab-Tech President, Scott FineColchester, Vermont - Scott Fine, President of Fab-Tech Inc., has been recognized by Vermont ESGR for his service and support of Vermont's Guard and Reserve members.

During their annual banquet held recently in South Burlington, Vermont, ESGR recognized Scott Fine as one of more than "40 employers who provided outstanding support to their citizen warrior employees over the past year. Guest speaker for the event was Major General Steven Cray, Vermont’s Adjutant General. State of Vermont Governor Phil Scott also participated in recognizing employers and providing brief comments. The event, hosted by Jean O’Sullivan, Vermont State ESGR Chair, was attended by several other senior uniformed Guard and Reserve members as well as key business and community leaders." [1]

Employees serving in the National Guard or Reserve have the opportunity to nominate individuals, supervisors, or bosses for the support and service they provide to the Guard member and his or her family. The Patriot Award honors the efforts made by the nominated individuals "to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed."

Fab-Tech is proud and honored to work with courageous service members like Bailey Gokey and Michael Drop.
