Changes At Wood Welded

After a quarter century at the helm of Michigan Maple Block, General Manager Fred Polhemus has decided to retire. For the last 25 years, Fred has led Michigan Maple Block in their day-to-day operations. In retirement, Fred will be spending his time on the golf course, on his Harley Davidson, or relaxing with his family.

Filling Fred’s position will be Dave Ritter. Dave is a transplant from our Bally, PA facility. For the last 34 years, Dave has been working at Bally Block starting on the production line and eventually working his way to General Manager. Dave is excited for the challenges and opportunities that will come along with running the day-to-day operations of Michigan Maple Block.

Taking over for Dave as the Plant Manager at Bally Block is Al Ottinger. Al is joining Bally Block after many years as a business consultant.
