Charlie: The End of an Era

Posted by: Kurt Cowgill | Friday December 21, 2018




Our warehouse manager of 33 years, Charlie Phipps, retired from his position. Charlie has been a fixture at NCI since the mid-eighties when he hired on to work in the warehouse at our South Walnut Street location in Muncie, IN. Charlie impressed his superiors immediately with his can-do attitude and willingness to do whatever was necessary to get the job done. The long hours of the fireworks season were no match for his work-ethic as he soon took over the role of Warehouse Supervisor and remained in this position until his retirement. Vendors, customers, past, & present employees will join us in our sadness to see Charlie go but also in our sincere wishes of good luck to Charlie in the future. If NCI had a Hall of Fame then Charlie would most definitely be a first ballot lock. Thank you Charlie, we hope you find peace and happiness in the next chapter of your life!


-Kurt Cowgill on behalf of everyone at NCI
