Butler Manufacturing Company’s Regional Sales Manager Melissa Stewart praised Kessel’s success in reaching the $50 million dollar level in lifetime sales, saying “I’ve grown up in the building business, and I’ve had a chance to work with a couple generations of the Kessel family. You don’t reach the $50 million dollar milepost without years of dedication to your craft and building some great buildings. Many towns and cities across Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York have been transformed by a Kessel building that becomes the centerpiece where people work, play and pray. What a great legacy!”
