FORT PAYNE, AL (WAFF) -

After making Fort Payne its home for 25 years, the city is naming a road in honor of a major employer in the city.

Company and city leaders were on hand for the ribbon cutting in front of the Siemens plant Friday afternoon. They make electric generator parts.

They paid special tribute to five employees who have been there since day one, back in 1988.

Company officials said the partnership with the community over the years has been tremendous.

"I think it gives our employees here a sense of pride and a sense of ownership with Siemens that not only are we committed to the community, but the community is committed to us," said plant manager John Ustica.

The 320 employees were also praised for their safety record. The group has gone more than a year without lost time due to accident - the longest in the history of the company worldwide.
