jim-cox_1Cardinal Scale’s Jim Cox has taken a well-deserved retirement after 53 ½ years employment with the company that began May 1, 1963. Cox retires with the notable distinction of being the longest-tenured production employee ever to work for Cardinal Scale. Cox worked in special projects in the pre-stress department and has built many of the company’s fixtures for production.

Cardinal Scale President Matthew Stovern described Cox as an extremely-talented welder and fabricator. Stovern said, “Jim has been involved in the development and production implementation of many of our heavy-capacity products. His skills, creativeness, and manufacturing know-how have been a true asset to our company.”

jim-cox_2Cox started with Cardinal Scale in 1963 working for company founder W.H. Perry in the Scale Shop chipping and painting truck scales. He then moved into working on the multi-torch and track torch to cut out plates and parts for mechanical scales. Cox later became a welder and stayed in that position most of his career. Cardinal Scale bought DETECTO in 1981 and Cox began building floor scales on the DETECTO line. Cox and co-worker Kelly Dinges were the very first operators of Cardinal’s truck scale robot. Over the years, Cox has even travelled to Guatemala to service Cardinal’s hopper scales.

Most recently, Cox has been working in the pre-stress department building prototype livestock scales, pre-stress concrete deck truck scales, and the Dump Commander trash can dumping device.

jim-cox_3“I have worked with Jim for several years, and the thing that I’m going to remember most about his work is that he wants to do things right, or not do them at all. Jim is very meticulous in his work, and he’s very creative when it comes to working on new projects. I’m going to miss Jim very much, and he has given me a lot of knowledge over the years. Now I just hope I can remember it all,” said Don Beason, Cardinal Scale’s Industrial Engineer and Maintenance Manager.

“Jim’s knowledge, craftsmanship, and friendship will be truly missed, but we wish him the best in his much deserved retirement,” said Stovern.

jim-cox_4Cox’s plans for retirement including working on his hot rod, fishing at Stockton Lake, and spending time with his brother in California. Cox said that he’s made a lot of friends at Cardinal Scale and will greatly miss the employees that he’s worked with over the years.
