Fulton Companies, a global manufacturer of steam, hydronic and thermal fluid heat transfer products, was honored with a Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve.
The Patriot Award is given by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency. ESGR Representative Frank O’Connor presented the award, commending both the employees who have ties to military service, and Fulton for its support.
“Military service people need support from both their families, and from the companies they work for,” O’Connor said during the award presentation at the Fulton’s Centerville Road, Pulaski, N.Y., facility. “It’s important to recognize both the employees and the company that has supported their endeavors.”
Fulton was nominated by employee Michael J. Friot, who works at Fulton as an Electrical/Mechanical Assembler. Friot is also a member of the U.S. Coast Guard; he was deployed to Iraq in 2011.
ESGR was established in 1972 to develop and maintain employer support for military service in the National Guard and Reserves. It advocates initiatives, recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of applicable laws, and resolves conflict between service members and employers.
Paramount to its mission is encouraging employment of Guardsmen and women, and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian work force.
