One of the few who have been with SABIAN even before there was a SABIAN, foundry supervisor Lewis Furrow has just reached the 40-year milestone with the cymbal-maker.

Throughout his 40-years at the SABIAN factory, Lewis has done a bit of everything – from shipping to production – giving him an intimate knowledge of the entire cymbal manufacturing process. A true practitioner of SABIAN core values, Lewis is a highly valued member of the SABIAN team.

“Lewis is a master of formula calculations for mixing our Bronze alloy,” comments VP of manufacturing Nort Hargrove. “As such, he plays a huge role of our success and is one of the main building blocks in our success as a company.”

In honor of his extraordinary service, SABIAN has donated $500 in cash and $2,000 in Gon Bops percussion instruments to the Music Therapy program at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, a cause that’s personally very dear to Furrow – Furrow’s own grandchild receives ongoing care at the IWK.
