TAMAQUA, PA-U. S. Rep. Tim Holden and Pennsylvania House Speaker Keith McCall joined a slate of elected officials, 30-year employees and other honored guests at the headquarters of global effect pigment manufacturer Silberline in Tamaqua, Pa., to celebrate the family-owned company’s 65th anniversary.

Hosted this week by third-generation president and CEO Lisa Jane Scheller, in conjunction with celebrations at the company’s facilities in Indiana, Scotland, China, Mexico and Singapore, the 65th anniversary event marked a milestone that drew praise for innovation, community involvement and a commitment to employees, customers and vendors.

State Sen. David Argall and State Rep. Jerry Knowles expressed their admiration for the company and the Sheller family during presentations for the Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives, respectively.

Scheller credited the core values championed by her grandfather, Ernest Scheller, Sr., founder, and by her father, Chairman Ernest Scheller, Jr., for establishing the solid foundation required for a company to grow and thrive for 65 years. “Conducting business with integrity and adhering to a strong moral compass were always hallmarks of the company and it’s an honor to carry on that responsibility,” Sheller said.
