After more than 30 years’ service with Plymate Inc., an industrial operator in Shelbyville, IN, Fred Stubbe, vice president of operations, recently announced his retirement.

CEO Todd Plymate said Stubbe’s contributions were essential to the company’s growth and progress in that period, according to a news release.

Major projects undertaken during Stubbe’s tenure include the implementation of barcodes and later RFID tracking, plus the establishment of a separate mat-processing facility. In the past year, he coordinated an expansion of the uniform-production facility that doubled the production area and included water-treatment upgrades, expanded RFID scanning, computer-assisted sort and more.

Co-owners Todd and Terri Plymate Warnecke described Stubbe as “a role model to those above and below him, treating all of his co-workers with the utmost respect.” On his last day at Plymate, Stubbe was honored by the mayor of Shelbyville, who proclaimed it “Fred Stubbe Day.”

Founded in 1930, Plymate has operated throughout that time as a family-owned and operated business. Plymate has two plants, serving customers in Central and Southern Indiana. Click here for details
