Finally, it is with a sad heart that we at ACS note the passing of our Executive Vice President, Bruce Bachman. Bruce had been a longtime friend to me and my family since 1980 and here at Adams Cold Storage since it began in 2010. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Bruce was a builder, a leader and his fingerprints are all over our company. He was directly involved in the management of our 250,000 square foot facility, helping ACS achieve and maintain the highest standards in the industry. He left a lasting legacy for his family, his community, and this company that will be felt for decades to come.
