“To AGC, I would like to wish you the best of luck and congratulate you on your purchase of Park’s iconic and very special Electronics Business,” said Brian Shore, Park’s chairman and CEO.   

“To Park’s Electronics Business employees, I would like to wish you the very best of luck in the future, and I would like to thank you for your outstanding service to Park over the years.  Although most of you never met my father, I am quite sure that, if Jerry was still with us, he also would want to thank you for your outstanding service to Park over the years.  I will think of you often, and I surely will miss you.  I admire and respect you so very much, and it has been my honor and privilege to work with you over our many years together.  I wish each and every one of you the very best of everything in the future,” Brian Shore concluded.
