"I continue to be amazed at the dedication, loyalty and longevity of employees at Young Manufacturing Company. There is one employee who retired March 7, 2012 after 48 years of service, who stands above all and this is Bernard "Clutch" Breckel. Clutch has driven over Ten million miles, yes, that's right, 10,000,000 miles, delivering product to our customers throughout the United States and Canada, always with a smile, this is something he can be proud of and something Young MFG company is proud of also.

Clutch was always willing to go no matter where we sent him or no matter what weather conditions he was facing, he always made the delivery. 

My Hope and prayer is that he enjoys his retirement as much as we have enjoyed him.
