Winnebago Industries Inc. celebrated 40 years of trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Thursday (Sept. 9).

In commemoration of the event, company representatives took part in the Closing Bell ceremony to officially close trading on the NYSE floor, according to a news release. Participating in the event were: Bob Olson, chairman, president and CEO; Sarah Nielsen, vice president and CFO; and Sheila Davis, public relations and investor relations manager.

Winnebago  joined the NYSE on Sept. 9, 1970.

“We are very proud of our partnership with Winnebago Industries,” said Scott Cutler, executive vice president, NYSE Euronext. “We are excited to celebrate this milestone with them and look forward to continuing our prosperous relationship for many years to come.”

“Ringing the closing bell on the NYSE was a very special moment,” said Olson. “We were humbled to participate in an event with this organization that has such a long and remarkable history. Our 40-year tenure on the New York Stock Exchange has been very rewarding in an age when many companies have not been as fortunate.”

While in New York, Winnebago personnel also met with several of the company’s investors and potential investors to review the company and the RV industry.

    Re the comments on Winnebago at the closing bell on Wall St. I am a bit surprised that there was no mention of the fact that Winnebago was once the number one performing stock in years past. I can’t recall the year, nor if
    it was largest gain in dollars, or volume, or another area.

    I do recall they were #1 in one year back in the 70’s or early 80’s. Perhaps someone either in the company or outside it can come up with the specific details.\ of that situation.
