This past Friday the staff and their families here at Atlantis Rail Systems & Suncor Stainless stoked up the grill and cracked open a cold drink for our annual company cook out. This yearly tradition is a chance for all our employees and their families to let their hair down and blow off some steam. Our work day ended a few hours early to enjoy good food, games, waterslides, and even an ice cream truck.
During the cook out Patrick, owner of Atlantis Rail and Suncor Stainless, took a moment to thank all of the employees. As well as presenting a brief “State of the Union” regarding sales and the future of the business, he also took this moment to honor long time employee Kevin Finn for his 20 years of service to the company. He presented Kevin with a gift and a hardy hand shake.
Following the speech everyone feasted on ribs, chicken, steak, and all the classic barbecue fair. After everyone had their fill, some of us lined up for the ice cream truck. Those few not in a food coma headed to the lawn games like “Can Jam” and Corn Hole where bragging rights were won. Children of the staff (and the rail shop) enjoyed the giant inflatable water slide.
Even though the weather was a bit chilly, fun was had by all. Atlantis Rail/Suncor Stainless is more than a company, it’s family. Events like the cook out highlight the close-knit crew here.
