Rick holds the record as being the longest tenured team member in the entire company, having been with Laurel Valley since 1979.

Whether its overseeing repairs, carefully calculating the mix ratio formula for a custom blend, trucking issues and scheduling or playing weather man for the days ahead, Rick keeps his cool under pressure.
