BARNWELL, SOUTH CAROLINA — KronotexUSA, one of the leading U.S. laminate manufacturers, recently renamed and dedicated its employee golf tournament to honor a recently deceased employee. The Dean Scarbeary Memorial Golf Tournament for Charity is scheduled for June 27, 2015, and has already raised more than $7,500.
Mr. Scarbeary, the Receiving Lead at KronotexUSA’s Barnwell laminate flooring plant, was one of the organizers of the annual employee golf tournament and worked at the laminate plant for 9 years.
The money raised is being donated to the Barnwell County (S.C.) First Responders who tried to save Mr. Scarbeary during the house fire that claimed his life.
“Our company has put down deep roots in Barnwell since building our 575,000 square-foot facility here beginning in 2005. We see this as just another way to thank those in our community who tried to help one of our own,” said Jeff Martin, the human resources manager for KronotexUSA.
