Passionate About Our Community
One of the things that brings us great joy is helping the communities in which we work. Here’s where we’re especially proud:
Boilermaker Road Race
The Utica Boilermaker 15K, started in 1978, attracts more than 14,000 runners. This includes elite athletes from around the world who compete for over $32,000 in prize money. But the focus is on the thousands of amateur runners who enjoy the competition. And consider the race an annual celebration of friends and family.
The race was started by Earl Reed of ECR International as the company’s contribution to the Utica community. It now includes a 5K and wheelchair race with annual donations exceeding $149,000. Who knew in 1978 that it would become one of the top 15Ks in the country!
An MRI Simulator for Children
In February of 2021 Granby FRP, a sister company based in Waverly, Nova Scotia, helped manufacture a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) simulator for children. The company partnered on the project with the IWK Health Centre’s Department of Pediatrics and the Faculty of Engineering at Dalhouse University.
One of the challenges with MRIs is that children are intimidated by the machine. Especially its loud noise and confined space. The simulator helps reduce anxiety and overcome their fear of this imposing machine. We helped manufacture and assemble the simulator’s panels. Then we sanded, did body work, and applied finishing coats.
The simulator is now in the waiting room of the Department of Pediatrics…and we couldn’t be prouder!
