Tony Boyce is retiring from Hettich Canada after 31 years with the company.
“It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Tony Boyce, whose last day of work will be on Dec. 23,” said René Dionne, president of Hettich Canada.
“While we are happy for him and the new adventures he will be undertaking, we can't help but feel sad for ourselves at the loss of such a valued colleague.
Tony has been an integral part of our company and his contributions will always be valued and remembered. The depth and breadth of his technical knowledge are unparalleled in the industry.”
Boyce began his career in the UK, where he spent a few years working in the kitchen and furniture industry, before moving to Canada where he joined Goldcrest Furniture as the production engineer. That engineering experience made Tony the perfect choice to lead Hettich’s technical product support efforts and he joined them in 1989 at a time when Hettich Canada had only a few employees.
Dionne said Boyce developed an undisputed passion for hardware and spent the main portion of his career at Hettich Canada, training cabinetmakers, distributors, sales representatives, and customer service employees across the country. He made friends and colleagues from the scenic Atlantic coast all the way to beautiful British Columbia. Later in his career, he transitioned easily to sales and joined his colleagues to continue to develop our growth.
“At Hettich, Tony’s work ethic, professionalism, passion, commitment, and dedication are what kept him going and, despite the ups and downs that any professional journey brings, Tony has been always present to answer any questions that came his way. Tony will be sorely missed.
“On behalf of everyone at Hettich, we would like to wish Tony the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
