Whayne Supply Anniversary

Whayne Supply officials are celebrating 100 years as a company and held an event to commemorate the event in Pikeville on Wednesday.

Company officials have now traveled to all ten locations throughout the state to celebrate the milestone with both current and retired employees. Pikeville was the final stop on their anniversary celebration tour.

President Monty Boyd says, "Even though the coal industry is kind of depressed and down, we still felt it was important to recognize this commemorative year and pay it it right."

County and city officials were on hand for the celebration as well as a representative from Senator Mitch McConnell's office.
