These days in the marine industry, it is difficult to find any business model that is sustainable. But in Bay City Michigan, there is one such place that has made excellent happen for 50 years. Last Saturday evening August 3rd, there was a celebration of this half century of excellence at the Gougeon Brothers/West Systems Epoxy headquarters.
Several of the early notables were there, along with the 2nd and 3rd generation of Gougeons ensuring those who gathered that they would be carrying on the tradition well into the future years to come. Spirits and food flowed freely, great times and smiling faces were all abound, and the festive atmosphere was enjoyed by all in attendance.
