"Decore has made it possible for myself and family to grow since my arrival to the United States. I truly appreciate the opportunity Decore has given to me and plan on retiring from this family oriented company. Thank you for allowing me to work for 35 strong years and many more to come."
"Decore has been a very family oriented company and I have enjoyed all my years working for them. Decore has given me the opportunity to grow right along with them. I have learned so much in my 30 years of service here at Decore. I thank the Lansford family for having me as part of the Decore family for so many years and more to come!"
"In 1978 I started as a truck driver and grew into supervision and management roles. When the plant in northern CA opened I was offered a job as General Manager. I became a Vice President and several years later Decore sponsored my education at CSUS in Lean Manufacturing and Materials Management. I feel very blessed that I found a company that has given me these opportunities and promoted my growth."
