WELCH VILLAGE, Minn. (March 6, 2015) — Bauer Built Inc. distributed more than $150,000 in prizes to 22 of its employees recently as the culmination of its year-long 70th anniversary celebrations.
The winners were were determined by a lottery-type sweepstakes drawing at Bauer Built's annual management and sales conference held Feb. 24 at Treasure Island Resort in Welch Village. Feb. 24 is the birthdate of the company founder G.F. “Sam” Bauer, who died in 1994.
Bauer Built President Tad Bauer announced the anniversary sweepstakes a year ago. Chances were earned based on either sales performance or length of service.
Among the prizes were pickup trucks, fishing boats, 4 wheelers or cash alternatives and a variety of other prizes, Bauer Built said.
Mr. Bauer said the sweepstakes reflect the company's slogan — “Our Strength is in our People.”
