Celebrating Milestones: Lino Varela-Ruvalcaba Retiring After 42 Years!


On Thursday, January 2, 2020, Decore-ative Specialties celebrated the retirement of Lino Varela-Ruvalcaba! Serving as a team member in our Shipping Department, Lino began his employment in 1978 at our Irwindale, CA facility, working as a sander, inspector, and product packager. Lino shared, "the last 10 years of employment have been the best 10 years. There have been ups and downs, but they have been the best!"

Lino’s 42 years of service, dedication, and positive attitude has been an integral part of our success. He leaves our Decore family to spend time with his own family in Mexico. Congratulations Lino!
