40th Anniversary Celebration – Thank You!
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the more than 150 individuals who joined us at our Open House on June 8th, as we celebrated four decades of dedication to serving YOU! It was a fantastic occasion, and we sincerely hope that you had a wonderful time too.
The event was filled with many highlights, including Patty Szymendera’s 40-year journey with UBS, technology demonstrations, free giveaways, the debut of our new golf simulator, and a chance to celebrate with some of our favorite customers, partners, and dedicated staff.
Wayne Kerling’s memory was on display with a commemorative plaque symbolizing his visionary leadership and lasting impact on United Business Systems since its establishment in 1983. Wayne’s commitment to customer satisfaction and his entrepreneurial spirit continue to inspire us, even years after his passing in 2016. We are grateful for his contributions to our success and continue to carry his legacy forward.
As we celebrate our 40th year anniversary, we also proudly honor Patty Szymendera, our Office Administrator, for her remarkable 40-year journey with United Business Systems. Since our company’s inception in 1983, Patty has been an invaluable asset, ensuring smooth operations and fostering a welcoming environment.
