ESGR in the News


ALTO, Mich. – Congratulations to Andy Bowen, Controls Lead at Magna Mirrors for receiving the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award. Bowen was nominated by Sgt. Casey Syrek who has been employed with Magna Mirrors for two years and served with the Michigan Army National Guard for fifteen years.

Syrek states that on more than one occasion Mr. Bowen has scheduled staff for him so that he can complete his military duties without worry. He also noted that Mr. Bowen has the "full support of the upper management team (Carl Commons and Tim Palmatier) if needed. Magna also offers military members compensation for money lost during training exercises." Sgt. Syrek mentioned during this ceremony that "in the fifteen years he has served, he has never been accommodated as well as he has at Magna."
