Employees of the Saint-Gobain Abrasives plant in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, personally delivered their site’s annual “plant community gift” charitable donation to the Volunteer Medical Service Corps of Lansdale, Pennsylvania.
“Last year, the Corps provided our plant with a valuable medical service,” says Brooke Lyons, EHS specialist. “For this reason, we decided to select their organization as the recipient of our community gift. We felt that this organization truly exemplifies some of the core tenets of Saint-Gobain--protecting the health and safety of the community. It was a nice visit and we enjoyed meeting with the crew there.”
During their visit, Brooke and Dennis Muller, plant manager, received a tour of Corps’ vehicle bay and met with members of the group’s staff.
Through the Saint-Gobain Corporation Foundation's Plant Community Gifts program, every manufacturing plants across the United States and Canada may make contributions to the development of the community in which it operates. Specific donations and initiatives are determined by the plants themselves, depending on regional needs and priorities.
The Saint-Gobain Abrasives facility in Montgomeryville manufactures high-performance fine grit abrasive products such as lapping film and paper used in metallurgy, fiber optics, and industrial applications.
