Congratulations to Gleason on 150 years of service to our community. I joined Gleason following graduation from college in 1965 joining the Tool Design department. Over the next 16 years I was assigned to several Industrial Engineering positions. What a wealth of knowledge gained. Where else can you follow a product from design, foundry, machine shop, build, testing and shipment. I am always grateful to Gleason for this opportunity. It was this knowledge and Gleason sponsored futher college studies that provided the chance to join Rochester Institute of Technology in 1980 as Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Department. I retired from RIT in 2001. I have fond memories of Gleason and its people.

I served Gleason for almost 20 years from 1987 thru 2007: Exciting years that I am proud to have lived and to have contributed with my commitment to the Gleason growth. Just a point to remember : a quote that I read when for my first time I crossed University Ave main door ; Before Business Gleason is People, I would like to add not only People but a Family ! I wish Gleason to be family for employees, customers and suppliers for next 150 years . Attilio

Working for Gleason in Plymouth England was very special for me as I had no qualifications in Engineering but was given a chance and after 38years going from manual machines to c.n.c also going through the lean process made me very proud to be part of the Gleason story

Happy Birthday Gleason!!!! I literally grew-up in this company. Yes, I have moved on but my time at Gleason is the single longest relationship I have ever had - not counting my family ties. Through Gleason I had the good fortune to travel to over 40 countries. Few people can say that their employer gave them the chance to literally see the world - but mine did. As a result I am truly blessed to have good friends all over the globe. Best wishes to Gleason and all employees past and present of which many are still my good friends Sincerely, Ned Wright Proud former cylindrical & bevel engineer
