Jack Williams Tire Co. Inc. is celebrating 90 years in business. The Williams family marked the milestone at the company's annual picnic with more than 500 employees and their families.

The picnic was held at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elysburg, Pa., the weekend of July 20-21.

At the picnic, the Williams family thanked their employees for their hard work and dedication to help them achieve 90 years in business. Employees were recognized for their tenure with the company with years of service awards. Among those who were honored this year was Joseph Yedloski, inside sales associate, who is celebrating his 35th year with the company.

“We’ve successfully been able to reach this milestone with the help of our employees. Without their dedication and hard work, our 90th anniversary wouldn’t have been possible,” says Bill Williams, chairman of Jack Williams Tire.
