Brothers Shawn and Ray Hernandez were delighted to meet and have their picture taken with Lieutenant Governor Pamela Evette when she toured the Worksman Cycles factory in Conway on March 22, 2019. Shawn and Ray are two of nearly 20 VR consumers employed at Worksman in positions that include assembly, warehousing, painting, welding and office work.
Wayne Sosin, President of Worksman Cycles, credits his close working relationship with VR's Conway office for helping to ease his business’s move to South Carolina. The company, which manufactures bicycles and tricycles for industrial, commercial and recreational use, opened a factory in Conway because it had outgrown its New York production facility.
Worksman Cycles is a family-owned company, founded in 1898, and is the oldest bicycle manufacturer in the United States.
