After 32 years Ron Smigiera is announcing Retirement with Marathon

Ron Smigiera started with Marathon in June of 1991. A lot of things in the world have changed since then but not Ron providing  his services for Marathon. On Tuesday, June 6th 2023 we celebrated Rons Retirement at The Original Warehouse restaurant in Orchard Park. Ron was presented gifts from the staff and a retirement check from President, Tod Cislo. Rons last day of work was June 23rd 2023. Ron, a man of very few words told the group at the retirement party, “I'm really going to miss you guys”.

Since we began using Eterno Adjustable Paver Supports last fall, we’ve been very impressed with the ease of installation, which in turn has benefited us greatly by reducing our labor costs. In addition to the labor cost savings, compared to the other adjustable paver supports on the market, we’re very pleased with the self leveling head, which is a major advantage when adjusting the pavers. The unique adjustable key allows for adjustments without removing the pavers. Other paver supports do not have this feature and are more cumbersome and labor intensive.

Another benefit is the new bi-component head of soft rubber which reduces any noise when walking on the pavers and helps ensure no movement of the pavers. The Eterno Adjustable Paver Support system has given us an effective edge over our competition with the ease of installation and the savings on labor cost. We’re very pleased that we came across this product."
