During a ceremony celebrating the opening of the companys $30 million facility expansion, Nuclear Fuel Services President Joe Henry praised the companys employees for their dedication.
Nuclear Fuel Services is made up of good people doing vital work for the nation, Henry said.
On Friday, NFS management and employees, as well as local and federal officials, gathered at the facilitys main entrance for a ceremony to honor Flag Day and to dedicate the new facility.
Our work supports our nations freedom and our American way of life, Henry said in a press release announcing Fridays event. We believe it is only fitting to dedicate this facility as we raise the American flag for the first time over the new NFS landscape.
According to the press release, among the $30 million in improvements the company made last year is a state of the art security building which was dedicated on Friday morning.
With NFS employees, visitors, government officials and media gathered outside the new security building, John Nagy, assurance director at NFS, introduced the three NFS employees selected by the company to present the flags to the Unicoi County Sheriffs Department Honor Guard which would be posted during the ceremony.
