On January 31st, 2017 we lost our beloved colleague and friend Michael Pugliese.  Mike passed away unexpectedly at the early age of 33. 

We at Polytec not only lost a great colleague, but also a dear friend and a wonderful, loving and caring person. Michael joined our company in 2008, and next year would have been with us for 10 years. Many of our customers referred to him and his colleague Mike Oliver as Mike & Mike or M&M for short when they showed up for an on-site service appointment.

Mike & Mike became a trademark over the last 9 years for outstanding service and I know that many of our customers will miss him as much as we do.

We at Polytec will miss him as a colleague, as a friend and for his supervisor Frank Gleason and I, it feels like we lost a son.

The memory of Mike’s wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts.  The Service team in heaven just added a wonderful human being.


May he rest in peace.
