Corporate Sponsors: Fairfield Inn Denver Airport
The Fairfield Inn by Marriott is a brand that has a lot of history and a very bright future.
In 1951, J. Willard Marriott Sr. discovered a 4,200-acre piece of the Blue Ridge foothills that reminded him of his boyhood days on the family farm in Utah. Since then, the property always known as “Fairfield,” has remained as calm and pristine as when the founder of Marriott International purchased it. Just as Marriott retreated and rode the ranch with U.S. presidents and business leaders around the world, Marriott Ranch still provides guests and businesses with the same benefits.
Fairfield Inn by Marriott was developed in 1987 for the value-conscious business travelers, who said they wanted a clean, comfortable room, a consistent product, a safe environment, and friendly service. Fairfield Inn has grown, and now is one of the largest brands owned by Marriott.
The Fairfield Inn by Marriott Denver International Airport is no exception. It imbues all of the Marriott culture, including an extreme devotion to its guests, customers, employees, and community.
Sensenich Propeller Service
Sensenich Propeller started when brothers Martin and Harry Sensenich built a propeller for a snow sled that was powered by an engine and a propeller. They lived on a large farm in Lancaster, PA, and had a need for a more efficient form of transportation.
They were so pleased with the work they had done on the propeller that they decided to make a new business carving propellers. They set up their business in a building that is now on the property of Lancaster Airport, Pennsylvania, and by the 1930s Sensenich Brothers Propeller Company was incorporated. In the 1940s there was a high demand for propellers by the military and the company grew from under 100 employees to more than 400.
By the 1950s the owners and employees of Sensenich saw the need to expand their capabilities. They decided to expand into the repair and overhaul services of propellers. The company serviced and still services general aviation, airlines, corporations, fixed-base operators, and the government.
In 1989 the company was sold to Philadelphia Bourse Inc. in Philadelphia, PA. The name was changed to Sensenich Propeller Corp. and the wood manufacturing was relocated to Plant City, FL.
In 1994 Sensenich Propeller Corp. expanded its overhaul and service skills and opened another FAA 145 certified repair station in Gainesville, GA, at Lee Gilmer Airport. In 1995 two employees, Joseph Maus and C. Ray Hershey, purchased the repair/overhaul operations of the company. Because of the well-respected name of Sensenich they renamed the company Sensenich Propeller Service Inc.
