Community

At PECo, we believe we are part of a larger community and we support our community both with our time and our contributions. From PECo’s inception, community involvement and integrity has been a top priority. Even during the recession of 2009-2010, PECo managed to support our local community. Our employees also share that spirit of giving through an honest day’s work and helping those less fortunate. Many of our employees sit on local non-profit Boards in order to help foster PECo’s continued commitment to the community. Our company owner, Albert Naggar has established a profit sharing philosophy of 1-1: 1% of profits given back to the community and 1% of employee time allocated for volunteering in the community. We support local sports teams, internal employee functions, such as golf and bowling leagues, local charities, non-profit organizations and the community at large. We believe that together, we can impact our community, thereby continuing a long standing commitment made by PECo’s founders. Some examples of our community support include:

 

United Way
Youth Area Soccer Teams
Muscular Dystrophy
Child Care Choices
Pink Ribbon Girls
Vera Bradley Foundation
What A Girl Wants Events for a Cure
Tipp City Farmers’ Market
Local Baseball Teams
Tipp City Area Arts Council
Tippecanoe Christmas in the Village
Versailles Scholarship Funds
High School Cross Country Teams

United Way | Manufacturing Day

Tipp City Area UNITED WAY

PECo has been a supporter of the Tipp City Area United Way for the past 10 years.   “United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income and health.”  We at PECo believe this to be a worthy cause and we are proud that a high percentage of our employees contribute to this organization.  Our employees delegate where their contribution is allocated.   The large majority stays in Miami County but some delegate to their favored 501C organization.  PECo supports this effort by matching DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR our employee’s contributions!

Manufacturing Day

PECo was honored to be a host for the Dayton Area Manufacturing Day in 2013.  Part of The MFG Day Mission states, “MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is – and what it isn’t.”  All of our employees joined together to show these local High School students WHAT WE DO!  We hosted 8-10 area groups and gave them tours in 3 of our facilities. The kids were very receptive and asked great questions about potential career choices.  It was an honor to be a part of this community event.
