“This is a record for our 140 employees who work in Thomaston,” said Mark Curtis, Dragon Products Safety and Human Resources Manager. “It surpasses our last record of 596,200 hours without a lost time injury. We are proud of our safety motto to have all employees go home as healthy as they came to work.”
