Scholarship Fund in Honor of Marcel Goepfert

June 21, 2016

This is the first year the Goepfert family have created a scholarship at Tolland High School for entrepreneurial students pursuing a degree in business in honor of their father Marcel. As a young entrepreneur Marcel touched everything in the business and truly built the company from the ground up at the age of 26 with a wife and young family in tow.

A 3,000-square-foot facility that started in Willington back in 1965 has grown and relocated to a modern 40,000-square-foot plant in Stafford Springs. While the company continues to grow with 85 employees with whom it shares its profits, five acquisitions, 1,500 active clients and $12 million in revenue, it still maintains its family business atmosphere.

We are proud to continue Marcel’s legacy with helping young entrepreneurs realize their true potential.
