May Citizen And Business Of the Month In Parma

Joe Gramuglia with Mayor DeGeeter and Ward 8 Councilman Dennis Kish

At a recent Council meeting, Joseph Gramuglia and CT Logistics were honored for being named the Mayor’s Citizen of the Month and the Mayor’s Business of the Month respectively.

Joseph Gramuglia, known around town as “GI Joe,” was chosen for Mayor’s Citizen of the Month for his exceptional work on behalf of veterans. When Joe was 18, he joined the Merchant Marines and was sent out with the Army Transportation Corps to the Pacific Islands during World War II. Being home for just three years after his WWII service, Joe was drafted by the Army and served in the Korean War. He was able to work his way from PFC to Staff Sergeant in the Army, and for his service in WWII and the Korean War, he earned two Bronze Stars.

In his retirement from serving, Joe spends his time making beaded key chains and desk flags for veterans and public officials. He made desk flags for every police officer and firefighter in the City and personally delivered the flags and key chains to all five fire stations. He has made key chains for the doctors, nurses and aides who have cared for him throughout the years.

The Business of the Month, CT Logistics, was established in 1923, and is one of the largest global third-party service providers of freight related post audit, pre-audit, Business Intelligence, and transportation management consulting. Although CT Logistics was incorporated in Cleveland, they built a new headquarters and made Parma their new home in 1979.

CT Logistics has provided more than 95 years of experience with comprehensive, broad supply chain accounting and business intelligence solutions. CT Logistics has been trusted by small firms to Fortune 100 corporations across the country, and around the globe, to assist them in making solid informed decisions regarding their freight bill audit and payment challenges.

Congratulations to both Joseph Gramuglia and CT Logistics!
