Dennis Goshert Retires
Dennis Goshert is one of the best known and recognized people to the pallet industry. Few people are more associated with the world of pallet lumber sawing. After 31 years of service with Pendu Manufacturing, Inc., “Senior” has been an icon in the industry and has served in a variety of positions with Pendu over the years, most recently as service manager.
Dennis began his stay with Pendu in the late 1970s as a field service technician, a position he held for about five years. He still has lasting memories of how Pendu machinery is respected in the business because of its durability, quality, and value. During his tenure with Pendu, Dennis has dutifully held the positions of salesman, sales manager, plant manager, and service manager. He has recently been serving as service manager and will hold that position until he retires in September.
When asked about his plans for retirement, Dennis replied, “I’m just going to take it easy, relax and do nothing.”
The pallet and sawmill industry wishes him good luck in his retirement and says a big “Thank You” to him for his 31 years of service to our industry while working with Pendu Manufacturing.
