FREEPORT — Freeport's Anchor Harvey, the aluminum forging company, is celebrating 100 years of serving the community this year.
Employees say working there has been a great experience from the atmosphere to the people they work with.
“Everybody's been like a secondary family... It's been a really good fit,” says Rodney Curran, Maintenance Electrician.
Anchor Harvey started out on the south side of Chicago and relocated to Freeport in 1978. Since then, it has become one of the city’s largest employers.
