Outstanding Employees of the Year

Owens Companies celebrated a great year at our annual meeting this week. As we start our 61st year in business, we spent time reflecting on the people who made the success possible. Each year we honor employees who go above and beyond the call of duty with our annual Outstanding Employee and Outstanding Technician of the Year Awards.

This year’s winner for Outstanding Employee of the Year went to Ms. Jill Stone! Jill started with the company in 2014 as one of our Dispatchers. She then moved into Customer Service in 2016 and in 2017 became one of our Technical Services Representatives. She is now working with commercial building owners helping run better building through comprehensive preventive maintenance, upgrades and energy management. She’s going places and we are so happy to have her here.


This year’s winner for Outstanding Technician of the Year went to Mr. Chris Strehlow! Chris has been with Owens for 19 years! Chris is one of our senior technicians. He is skilled in all different kinds of systems including boilers and industrial piping systems. He is talented, great with the customers and has an extremely good attitude. He has contributed so much to the company and is able to now watch the new generation of Owens technicians find a place here too.

Congratulations, Jill and Chis. We appreciate all of your hard work and look forward to all this year will bring.
