Kent Adhesive Products Company (Kapco) Phil Zavracky Retires

After 32 years of service with Kapco, Phil Zavracky will be retiring on January 2nd, 2019. Phil joined the company in 1987 when there were only thirty-three full time employees on the payroll. With Phil’s managerial and technical support, the company increased revenues by a factor of ten and employee headcount has nearly tripled. He has been crucial in directing, innovating, and adapting new process technologies with our existing and custom equipment. Many of Kapco’s core processes can be traced back to Phil’s successful innovation.

Phil's leadership and innovative processing techniques have kept Kapco ahead of our competitors, both locally and nationwide which has assured Kapco’s future success through the next decades.

Elie Merheb, President and CEO of Kapco, commented that “Phil has been a critical part of the leadership team making sure Kapco is well positioned for future growth. His experience, his passion and his level of commitment to Kapco’s success are unmatched and will be missed.”

Phil has been a true asset to Kapco and will be greatly missed. Kapco held a retirement recognition ceremony of appreciation for Phil’s relentless dedication, personal drive for the company’s continued success, and to wish him much success on the Bass Tournament Trail.
