“T minus 50 minutes, chaps.” announced James Read to a team of employees, ready to show off what Rimex had to offer.

On Saturday, June 18, Rimex hosted its Open Day for the public. Tour groups of 10 -15people went through the plant to look at what Rimex did on site and to learn more about what the company does.

“The reason why we invited you here today was because we have turned 40 years old in both company and  community, and to also celebrate with you, the Occupational Safety Standard of Excellence (OSSE) award, we recently won,” Read said.

After the half an hour tour, visitors went under the tents to where Lori’s catering served hot dogs, burgers and refreshments.

Around 140 people came out to celebrate with the proud Rimex employees on the otherwise rainy day.

Jokes were passed, laughter was shared and people left Rimex with full stomachs a custom engraved bottle opener, in time for the summer.
