Remington Retirement: Terry Buckingham retires after 46 years

Call it a family legacy.

Terry Kovach Buckingham, technical coordinator shipping and receiving, retired from Remington on the last day of February after 46 years and 8 months. She is one of four others in her family who found employment at Remington for a combined 216 years of service at the company.

Through her career, Terry held various positions within the plant, but she did have a favorite.

"Styrofoam mold technician in shot shell. There, I scheduled my own job and was in total control from raw material stage to the finished product," she said. 

For Terry, Remington runs in the blood. She moved to Arkansas in 1970 when her Dad, Steve Kovach, was transferred to Lonoke from the Remington plant in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Her dad and mother both worked at the Lonoke plant. But it didn’t stop there; Terry’s husband Steve Buckingham and her mother-in-law Phyllis also retired from the Lonoke Remington plant. This family has given a combined 216 years of service and dedication to Remington! 

Thank you, Terry for all the time, faithfulness and dedication to making Remington successful! You will be missed!
