From Repairing Personal Electric Razors to President – Roger Kauffman Celebrates 50 Years at EMR
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – November 18, 2014 – Electric Motor Repair Company (EMR) announced today that Roger Kauffman is the company’s longest-tenured employee. Kauffman began his career at EMR in 1964 when he was hired to fix household appliances, including electric razors and window fans, and 50 years later he is the company’s president. EMR’s executives and staff celebrated Kauffman on September 27, 2014, during an award presentation at Gunpowder State Park at the company’s annual cookout.
“I am truly honored to be recognized for my time with EMR over the past 50 years,” said Roger Kauffman, president, EMR. “It has been a joy to get up each morning and come to work no matter what my task has been. I must add that our longevity, growth and success have been possible only through the efforts of everyone within the company, both past and present. EMR brings a group of highly trained technicians and support staff to the commercial cooking, refrigeration and industrial markets throughout six states. Despite the company’s more than 85 year history, we’ve only just begun and are looking forward to expanding our services in the mid-Atlantic region.”
The Kauffman family has a rich history at EMR, which spans three generations. Kauffman’s father, Harry Kauffman, who first joined EMR in 1946, introduced his son to EMR when he was a freshman in junior high school. When Harry Kauffman retired in 1985, Roger Kauffman, then 37 years old, assumed leadership of EMR. Today, Roger’s daughter Caroline Kauffman-Kirschnick is the company’s branch operations manager in Baltimore and is active in all facets of the company’s operations.
“I couldn’t be more proud of my father and am extremely excited to be by his side as we celebrate his 50th anniversary at EMR,” said Caroline. “I have a deep respect for the level of commitment my father has given to EMR to make it a leading commercial and industrial service repair company and I look forward to his continued leadership for years to come.”
