Supfina Presented with Seven Seals Award by the ESGR
[October 4th 2021] – Supfina announced today that they have been honored by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) with the Seven Seals Award. According to the ESGR, the award is “…the broadest and most inclusive award given by ESGR and is presented at the discretion of the State Chair or by ESGR senior leadership. The Seven Seals Award is presented in recognition of significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative, or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.”
Allen Ciotola, a precision machine tool builder at Supfina, took the time to nominate his employer for this award. Ciotola, who has been serving in the National Guard for nine years, has included stints where he deferred his day-to-day duties at the company to serve.
Supfina was one of six organizations presented with this Servicemember Appreciation Award at the Rhode Island Committee for ESGR Awards & Recognition Dinner at the Quonset Officers’ Club in North Kingstown. James Lospaluto, President of Supfina Machine Company, spoke emphatically about the honor.
