Lewis Furrow Celebrates 40 Years with SABIAN

Lewis FurrowOne of the few who have been with SABIAN even before there was a SABIAN, Foundry Supervisor Lewis Furrow has just reached the 40-year milestone with the New Brunswick-based cymbal-maker.

Throughout his 40-years at the SABIAN factory, Lewis has done a bit of everything – from shipping to production – giving him an intimate knowledge of the entire cymbal manufacturing process. The company says that Lewis is a a true practitioner of SABIAN core values and a highly-valued member of the SABIAN team.

“Lewis is a master of formula calculations for mixing our Bronze alloy,” comments VP of Manufacturing Nort Hargrove. “As such, he plays a huge role of our success and is one of the main building blocks in our success as a company.”

In honour of his extraordinary service, SABIAN has donated $500 in cash and $2,000 in Gon Bops percussion instruments to the Music Therapy program at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, a cause that’s personally very dear to Furrow as his own grandchild receives ongoing care at the IWK.
