Employee Stock Ownership Plan

As a family company, we’re all in this together. In 1984, to sustain the family culture and future of John Henry Foster, Bob and Kathy Gau (then owners), instituted an ESOP- Employee Stock Ownership Plan. The retirement plan, bonus plan, and profit-sharing plan was gifted to employees, at no cost to them.

To our employees, ESOP means ownership, security, opportunity, and family. Working together towards a common goal helps us grow stronger relationships, a more sustainable future and ultimately, better lives-both personally and professionally.
Today, John Henry Foster employees own 100% of the company.
