Manufacturers Recognize Lion Precision of Minnesota with Award for Community Service
Manufacturer Honored with the NAM’s Sandy Trowbridge Award
Washington, D.C. , 10/26/12 - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) recognized Lion Precision of St. Paul, Minnesota, with the Sandy Trowbridge Award for Excellence in Community Service. The Trowbridge Award honors an NAM member company that has shown exemplary leadership in serving its community or state and is an example of the giving spirit of our nation’s manufacturers and businesses.
Lion Precision is an innovative manufacturer with a strong belief in community service. The value of helping others in the community and throughout the world is woven into the fabric of what the company stands for. Employees generously volunteer their time to the Feed My Starving Children organization to help children in 60 countries around the world. Employees also lend their time to Habitat for Humanity activities and numerous other causes important to them in the St. Paul area. And, as part of their efforts, Lion Precision provides financial support to numerous local humanitarian organizations to assist the homeless and struggling families.
"Lion Precision and its employees are carrying on the tremendous legacy of Sandy Trowbridge with their commitment to serve others in their community,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “The work of Lion Precision is a great example of how manufacturers can make a difference and have a positive impact to help those in need.”
The Trowbridge Award is named after the late Alexander B. “Sandy” Trowbridge, former Secretary of Commerce who served as president of the NAM from 1979 to 1989. Trowbridge was known for his leadership on behalf of manufacturing and for his strong commitment to community service.
