Benito Martinez, 50 Years of Dedicated Service


Benito Standing in Front of His Banner, Celebrating 50 Years

On March 7th we had the privilege to celebrate a key member of the WARCO Family, Mr. Benito Martinez, and honor his 50 years of dedicated service. This is a milestone that few will ever achieve in their careers and we cannot fully convey our tremendous gratitude for Benito’s unparalleled commitment.

Benito began his career with WARCO on March 7, 1973 as a Press Operator in the Injection Molding department. In 1974 Benito was promoted to Leadman of the department. His work ethic and dedication earned him accolades and in April, 1978 he was promoted to General Foreman of the Steering Wheel department, followed by General Foreman of the Injection Molding department in October. He has held his current role since 1994 as General Foreman of the Maintenance department.

Throughout his tenure, he has played an integral role in building our company and nurturing its growth. His exceptional work ethic, his expertise, care, devotion, and deep love for WARCO and its people have made an indelible impact on each of us and our company’s legacy. We are immensely thankful for everything Benito has accomplished and continues to accomplish during his second 50-year term at West American Rubber Company.
