At the end of 2019, we said goodbye to John Holt, as he retired. John served Kanawha Scales & Systems very well over many, many years, as he started with KSS in 1981.

Over the years John served in a variety of capacities for KSS, including: service technician/test truck driver, territory sales representative, service manager, branch/territory/ and district manager, and sales representative for our heavy capacity test equipment. Somewhere in the middle of all that, John went to work for the State of WV as a scale inspector, only to come back home to KSS.

John’s energy, commitment, and passion for our company and our customers is unparalleled. He continually worked to satisfy every customer, every time. His longstanding service to KSS is highly appreciated. We wish John the very best in his retirement, along with his wife and best friend, Barb.

Along with this change, we are pleased that Wes Duncan, formerly Fabrication Supervisor, will pick up where John Holt left off with our test equipment manufacturing operations as Manufacturing Manager. Wes began his career with Kanawha Scales in 2007 and has long worked under Holt’s tutelage.
