There is no doubt that thoughts of sweet potato casserole, turkey, dressing and all the trimmings preoccupy approximately 98% of our brain power during the week of Thanksgiving. However, when it is finally time to sit down and chow down… what is it that comes to mind as the reason to give thanks? My mind started to wander, thinking about all of the obvious answers… family, friends, pets, hobbies, the delicious meal we get to enjoy… and then timed to perfection, an unsuspecting email was delivered to my inbox.

Another great Vulcan Sales Meeting has taken place in Foley, Alabama.
Just a brief note to say thank you for all that you do to make Vulcan Inc. such a great place. Once again, I left Foley with a new flare for my job, our customers and the great people that I work with.
I love and appreciate you all!!!

An Employee Owned Company!
Kyle is a Sales Representative for Vulcan, based in Texas. He had just returned home from Sales Week which is hosted once a year at our home base in Foley, Alabama. For Kyle, the week was filled with sales planning, presentations, tours of upgrades to our manufacturing facility, training and most important of all… time to interact with his co-workers which he spends a large majority of his day emailing and calling.
We all know that work relationships can be challenging at times, but at the end of the day, we must remember that we are all working together to accomplish the same goal. We can choose to have a positive or negative attitude to combat whatever challenges come our way, however, today I am truly thankful for Kyle Potts and his regards that meant so much to all that received his email. This short, heartfelt note made the incredible people I work with shoot to the top of my “thankful” list.
We wish all of our customers, vendors, and employees a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
