Bob Funk Retires

Bob Funk, Industrial Engineer with Dudek & Bock, retired after almost 20 years of service.  Bob joined the Dudek & Bock team in 1998. Over the years Bob was responsible for numerous tasks, including plant layout, machine placement, product packaging, development of standards, and too many reports to count! We wish Bob well in this new phase of his life.

Eugene Bochnak Retires After 50+ Years

Dudek and Bock bid farewell to Eugene Bochnak, who retired after over 50 years of service to the company. Eugene joined Dudek and Bock in 1966. He worked for the company in several departments, and retired as a Toolmaker in our Brake Spring Department. He was joined by his co-workers, as well as members of the Dudek and Bochnak families for a retirement celebration. His dedication, expertise, and extensive experience will be missed. His colleagues will miss him personally as well, as a nicer co-worker cannot be found. Eugene, we wish you the best!

Making a Difference

Dudek & Bock was featured on NBC News, Chicago Channel 5’s “Making a Difference.”

Chicago Public Schools’ Manufacturing Connect program teaches students advanced manufacturing skills, and students are placed at local manufacturers such as Dudek & Bock.

“My family believes in giving people opportunities so we’re willing to train our youth,” said Kathleen Dudek.
