Companies like F3 that choose to remain in this once great city are helping us in our joint endeavor to restore our neighborhoods, resurrect businesses and bring decent, affordable housing for many.

Since arriving in Paterson in 2007, F3 Engineering, an aerospace industry and manufacturing company, has experienced phenomenal growth. And now, the company is giving back to the community that has embraced it.

F3 recently participated in a landmark event involving Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit Christian housing organization that brings people together to build homes for families in need. The company served as one of the lead corporate partners for the building of the organization's 500,001st home. The joint effort between Habitat for Humanity's international office and its Paterson affiliate was made possible largely due to F3's financial support.

“Companies like F3 that choose to remain in this once great city are helping us in our joint endeavor to restore our neighborhoods, resurrect businesses and bring decent, affordable housing for many,” said Gina Damiano, manager, Resource Development and Corporate Relations, Paterson Habitat for Humanity.

F3 staff have also participated in actual builds, including the recent Harrison Green Project, part of Habitat's Corporate Challenge, which involved the creation of five total climate choice homes that will be ready for occupancy in early spring 2012. F3 staffers spent a portion of their weekend painting and installing sub-flooring.

“We are so happy to be able to participate in a project of this magnitude, which allows us to give back to the city,” said Odilo Vazquez, F3 Engineering president. “During a time when there are so many financial challenges—both personally and professionally—we are blessed to be experiencing an increase in contract awards and product orders. Many of our employees are from Paterson, so it's only right we invest in the area where our staff and their families live.”

While Habitat has projects throughout the world, Paterson was chosen to mark the occasion of the organization's 500,001st house because of Paterson Habitat's local efforts--building 225 houses in 26 years—in addition to contributing nearly $475,000 to Habitat Kenya.

“Paterson Habitat is proud to have F3 Engineering as one of its most progressive and generous corporate partners,” Damiano added.
