Steuben County, "Box Regatta"

Pam Miller: “I have been here 27 years and although there are many things I love about my job, I would have to say the most outstanding has been the opportunity to learn and grow within this family-owned business. Working for a company who's values and commitments to their customers and employees a high priority, makes it easy to love coming to work every day.”

Troy Hantz: - 30 years. "Family atmosphere. I can say I'm in a good mood when I have to go to work. Love what I do, fun (sometimes)."
Dan Parker:  5 years.  ”One of my most favorite thing is, we are not a number ! Meaning we are small enough to know each other names (most of their families). My second and I know you said one, but the get it done mind set (Love it too)!"

Brenda Smith:"Great working atmosphere – very family oriented. Very amazing to me being able to see where we were 25 years ago and where we are now.  Quite a difference."

Randy Smith: "I have worked here almost 12 years! We all have the same goal in mind: Customer Satisfaction. Friendships. I feel like my co-workers are more like family. Short and sweet." 

Scott Blaschak: "I’ve been the Controller for Covington for nearly 11 years.  What I enjoy most is being allowed to work as a trusted individual with the freedom to use my skills to contribute to our overall success!  The element of trust encourages me to step up my game and do my part."

Laura Collier: I joined Covington Box in 2017, so I am one of the newest members of the team.  One thing I see on a daily basis is Covington Box employees working very closely as a team to make sure their customers are 100% satisfied.  I personally like the independence of being able to do my job and to know I am truly supported.  I see a company who truly cares about their customers and their employees, making Covington Box a great place to work… did I say fun as well!
