Pace Industries, North America’s leading full-service aluminum, zinc and magnesium die casting company, announces that its Airo Division located in Loyalhanna, Penn., has received the top Jobs First Governor’s ImPAct Award. The award, which recognizes businesses throughout Pennsylvania that have made a positive impact on local and state economies through consistent job growth and retention, was recently presented to the company by Governor Tom Corbett.
Leaders credit the award to the company’s commitment to creating a safe, positive work environment where associates are encouraged to grow and succeed.
“The award is about job growth and retention, but it’s also about associate development,” said Dan Krinock, president, Pace Airo Division. “We’re proud to invest significantly in benefits for our workforce such as job training, tuition reimbursement, gain-sharing, an on-site wellness clinic and market place chaplains.”
Associates are also empowered to become active participants in local civic and social organizations.
At a recent award presentation ceremony, Governor Corbett remarked, “This recognition goes beyond the contributions made to Pennsylvania's diverse and vibrant economy. Today, we celebrate Pennsylvanians who embody the American dream by taking risks, working hard and achieving success.”
The Corbett administration created the Governor’s ImPAct Awards initiative in 2013. Nominations were provided by the state’s regional economic development partners – the Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance (PREP) network. Recipients were chosen by an independent judging panel selected by the state’s partners, Team Pennsylvania Foundation (Team PA) and Journal Multimedia. A total of 247 nominations were received.
“We have been recognized for our efforts numerous times by customers in my 38 years with the company, but this award is different,” Krinock said. “It recognizes the impact that we have had on our associates and our community, and it proves that doing the right things does get recognized.”
