Blaser started his career in CAPCO aluminum extrusion as a general laborer. Over the years, he has held a variety of roles including extrusion press operator, Tool and Die set up operator and Senior Machine Setup Operator.
“We congratulate Glenn and admire his dedication and commitment to Winnebago throughout his 50 years of service,” said Brian Hazelton, Vice President and General Manager, Winnebago Motorhomes. “Glenn’s service is an inspiration to all of us and we are thrilled to welcome him into the “50 years of service” club.”
After graduating high school, Blaser was looking for a job to earn money so that he could attend college and learn the construction trade. He found employment at Winnebago and liked what he was doing so much he decided that what he was doing would make a good career for him.
In his spare time, Blaser has been active in the Knights of Columbus and enjoys gardening, boating, bicycling and walking. One of his favorite parts of working for the Company involved a memorable family vacation to California in a Winnebago motorhome. In recognition of his 50 years of service, Winnebago presented Blaser with an opportunity to take another Winnebago road trip to a destination of his choice next year complete with campground and gas certificates.
