Happy Retirement, Chuck!

After 48 years of dedicated service to L&P, please join us in extending best wishes to Chuck Denisio on his retirement!

Chuck’s Career at L&P

Chuck started his career with Leggett & Platt in Mason, Ohio, as a Box Spring Nailer and quickly became the Quality Manager/Safety Director in 1976. In 1983, he was promoted to Plant Superintendent after moving to the Edison, New Jersey, facility. When that facility closed in 1984, he had the opportunity to move to Winchester, Kentucky, as the Quality Manager. During his tenure in Winchester, Chuck was also a Plant Superintendent and an Operations Manager before becoming Branch Manager in 2009. He has led the Winchester team in achieving seven Best in Class Awards, several Governor’s Safety and Health Awards, and consistently meeting branch goals.

Recently, Chuck received the title of Kentucky Colonel—the highest title of honor awarded by the Governor of Kentucky—for helping people affected by the floods of eastern Kentucky during the summer of 2022. Chuck and his teams donated more than 1,500 beds and other supplies to help bring relief to those who were affected.

Looking Back

We asked Chuck to share about his favorite memories and what he enjoyed doing the most at L&P:

My favorite memories are watching the company evolve over the years and being a part of the changes that made our company successful. I am proud that we grew from small plant quality circles to a world-class system of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement.

I enjoyed working for a company that gave me opportunities at every stage of my career. Helping others succeed in their careers was also very rewarding.

Looking Forward

After he retires, Chuck plans to stay busy with photography, exercising, and volunteering in his community and church.

We wish you all the best, Chuck!
