Neillsville Foundry (Award - 1976)

Special recognition was given Tuesday in Minneapolis, Mn., to the Neillsville Foundry, Inc., by the Onen Corporation, a large manufacturer of armatures and a customer of the Neillsville metal casting firm.

There to receive a plaque were Al Payleitner, brother of Val Payleitner, president of Neillsville Foundry, Inc.; Bill Fleming of Milwaukee, head of sales for Barclay Industries, In., parent of the Neillsville Foundry; and Dr. Wally Weil of Eau Claire, salesman.

The award was made for re-engineering and developing pattern for an armature part which has cut the cost of manufacture of the part significantly. The awards are presented quarterly by Onen Corporation, and, according to Greg Payleitner of the Neillsville Foundry, Inc., “the competition is fierce.”
