Seidel retires from FBP with nearly 35 years of service

PIKETON, Ohio -- April 27, 2023 -- More than three decades after taking a job at the Portsmouth site with Martin Marietta, Chuck Seidel has decided to retire from Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth (FBP). For Seidel, retirement means being able to spend more time traveling and more time working on his farm.

On April 25, Chuck Seidel retired from Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth with 35 years of service at the Portsmouth site. President and CEO Greg Wilkett congratulates Seidel on his retirement.

Seidel was hired in the late 1980s to work in the lab before training to become a process operator. Since then, some of his roles have included supervisor, cascade controller and plant shift superintendent. During his nearly 35 years of service, Seidel worked shift work.

“Even though he is leaving us, we are happy for Chuck in his decision to retire,” FBP President and CEO Greg Wilkett said. “He’s certainly earned some time off doing what he wants to do most. We wish him well in his retirement.”
