November 3, 2017 – AEI Supervisor Retires

Jim Rufer handed over the reins Friday, October 13th as he begins to dig into retirement. Jim has been a mainstay at AEI since 1985.  He began as a mechanic in the shop and quickly worked his way up to shop supervisor. He oversaw operations both in the shop and the field.  Jim had an infectious, “get it done” attitude that kept his crews focused and motivated.  Jim’s commitment and unparalleled work ethic have been essential to AEI’s growth over the past twenty-five years. We will miss Jim and the value he brought to our team, his humorous stories, and the laughs he leaves behind. Best wishes Jim and enjoy retirement, you earned it!
