CAPPS Shoe Company honors employees of 20 or more years of service


22 NOVEMBER 2011

CAPPS SHOE COMPANY, Gretna, Virginia, hosted a luncheon today at C & E Family Restaurant to honor employees with over twenty years of service, noting particularly the service of Mrs. Mary Moore, who was recently forced to retire due to illness. Mary will be missed greatly.

Tom Capps, President, and Tim Huffman, Director of Manufacturing, both emphasized that pride in workmanship, loyalty, and the experience of our dedicated employees, has been the primary contributor to the success of Capps Shoe Company.  When Capps acquired the factory in 1997 he was able to re-instate many of the former Craddock Terry employees, many of whom are still with the Company. The approximately 50 employees honored at the luncheon, of the 175 total, represent over 1500 years of shoe making experience, an impressive number in any type of business.

Capps Shoe Company manufactures uniform dress shoes for the U.S. Department of Defense for both men and women, and for all branches of the military. This year, Capps presence as an internet retailer in both uniform and civilian shoes has been growing rapidly. Dress and casual footwear in over 100 sizes and widths for both men and women may be purchased at usmadeshoes.com or at the Company’s outlet store at 300 Monticello Ave in Lynchburg.
