HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—In honor of Santinelli International’s 40th anniversary, all 75 team members of the lens finishing equipment company recently gathered on Long Island, N.Y. for meetings and celebrations. Sales and service associates traveled from around the country to attend their annual sales and service meetings, collaborate with internal associates and celebrate the significant milestone.

The sales and service teams carved time out of their meetings for a Habit for Humanity “house build,” a team-building activity that the company has embraced in the past two years as one of its favorite “non-optical” philanthropic efforts.

The week was topped off with an anniversary celebration at The Pavilion at Sunken Meadow Beach. Stephen Santinelli, technical communications manager brought together a few associates who are fellow members of The EyeRock Band for a surprise performance, including company president and CEO Gerard Santinelli founder and chairman Joe Santinelli. Dancing under the stars on the boardwalk, company associates celebrated 40 years of success and innovation.

“It was a rare and wonderful occasion to have everyone together in our own backyard to share ideas, strategize and discover new ways to better serve our clients,” said Gerard Santinelli. “We have a deep appreciation for our entire team and our valued clients who make it all possible.

“The beachside party provided the perfect opportunity for us all to socialize and revel in the brand and reputation we’ve built over the last 40 years,” Santinelli added. ■
