Today, we would like to recognize someone who has been a part of the Atlantic Bottling Family for quite some time. Judy Eide, the current office manager at our Waukee office, celebrates her 45th anniversary with the company this week. Judy started with the company back in 1969 as a receptionist at the Fleur plant (which at the time, wasn’t under the Tyler’s management). In 1979, the Tyler’s took over the Fleur plant, and by 1989, Judy moved into the new Waukee office.
Judy’s favorite memory with Atlantic Bottling is from back in 2009 when the company had a 100 year celebration party, where Judy was presented with an award for 40 years of service to the company. Her favorite part of her job is the people that she gets to work with every day, but the most challenging part of her job is trying to please everyone. Judy’s favorite Coca-Cola beverage is Mello Yello Zero (although not currently in production). She also likes Diet Coke, and loves the classic 8oz Coca-Cola bottles.
Congratulations on 45 years, Judy, and we hope for many years to come! You truly are a vital part of this company, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
