Schelp was honored to receive the award. “I’m blessed to work at an organization that values the characteristics that the EPIC Way stands for.  It speaks to the culture established here starting all the way at the top with John [Schott, President and Owner]…We really have an exciting place full of special people here at EPIC.” he shared.

Ken Sipes, the Process and Mechanical Group Manager at EPIC added “For the past five years I have been privileged to manage and lead Tim.  He is the kind of guy who simply earns the respect of everyone he meets.  Every day he comes to work and gives me and EPIC more than a fair day’s work and willingly takes on more work just when you think he can’t take anymore.  In doing so, he consistently delivers excellent results with success.  He is a real pleasure to be around and I look forward to being part of what he can accomplish in his next five years.”
