For showing true Americanism, Girard Equipment was honored with this celebrated accolade.
Having pride in the American flag has been a staple of the Girard Equipment company since opening its doors in 1952. To show their patriotism Girard Equipment displays a physical flag at all of its US locations, company apparel, and even on the parts exported from their Florida manufacturing facility. As a whole, Girard Equipment has always been proud of its American roots and the value of the skilled American worker. That is why it was no surprise that the Exchange Club of the Treasure Coast chose to acknowledge Girard Equipment with their highest praise for Americanism: The “Proudly We Hail” Award.
Americanism is one of the pillars of the Exchange Club and honoring local businesses that share in this ideal is the essence of the “Proudly We Hail” Award. According to Marketing Director, Anna Valencia, “We may think globally but we act locally and we are proud to be American made.”
The award ceremony took place at Girard Equipment’s machine shop in Vero Beach, FL on January 17t
h, 2013. Girard Equipment President, Tim Girard, was joined by Anna Valencia and Michael Fernandez, GEI directors, to accept the customized plaque. They were joined by various Exchange Club members from the Treasure Coast Chapter. For more commentary visit the GEI blog at www.girardequip.com.
