50 Years at Waupaca Foundry Brings a Lifetime of Changes
On December 10th, 1971 Tracey Ambacher joined Waupaca Foundry. He started at Plant 1 in his senior year of high school. At the time, there was no application process. Tracey’s neighbor was none other than, Plant Manager Gary Thoe (who was later promoted to CEO). Gary recruited Tracey to join the team at the same time that Ambacher’s number was almost called to service in the Vietnam War draft.
