Estabrook has long prided itself on the knowledge that we could not survive as a corporation without the contributions of each of our key players on our team. Conversely, we do not survive as a whole by emphasizing and relying on only individual employees. Since our founding in 1965, Estabrook has continued to grow due to the diligence, foresight, and skills of our dedicated team.

"The Whole Is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts"

Employee Spotlights

Ray Bonness, Distribution Shop Coordinator/Pump Technician 

28 Years with Estabrook



Ray began his employment at Estabrook in March of 1993 as a Pump Assembly Mechanic/Technician. Ray has gained valuable knowledge in our Berea, Ohio distribution shop over the years and has been a key player in ensuring that we complete our pump jobs correctly and send them out the door on time. 


Estabrook has long recognized Ray’s expert mechanical and technical abilities over the past 28 years. Today, Ray is a Distribution Shop Coordinator/Pump Technician on our team. Ray has mentioned that he has always enjoyed what he does, especially fabricating pump bases for systems for our customers. 


When Ray is not working, he loves spending time outdoors—especially camping, fishing, and riding his motorcycle.


Fran Torok, Accounts Payable Specialist

31 Years with Estabrook



Fran joined the Estabrook team in February 1990 as an Accounts Payable Specialist, responsible for handling all vendor issues. Over her 31 years on our team, Fran has taken on other responsibilities, including sales and use tax reporting and general accounting duties. Fran stands out as an exemplary employee as she efficiently tackles any projects handed to her.


When asked what motivates her to wake up and go to work each day, she replied, “I really enjoy problem solving, and a lot of that goes on in our department. And every day is different, so it is never boring. I also really enjoy the people I work with; we have laughed and cried together, and supported each other through the years.”


Fran mentioned that she works with a great team that runs the “inner workings” of our company smoothly and efficiently.
