CHICAGO—Flexan Corp., a custom molded rubber manufacturer, assembled and delivered eight bicycles to the Boys & Girls Club of Morgan Park.
Part of an internal team building initiative, 24 members of the management team spent the final hours of an afternoon meeting on Nov. 18 assembling the bikes. The next day the team delivered them to the Boys & Girls Club and toured the facility of the charity.
“We're grateful to businesses like Flexan for not only its donation, but for recognizing the safe environment and quality programs we provide throughout Chicago,” Club Director Robert Barnes said in a Flexan news release. “We look forward to a long and mutually-beneficial relationship with Flexan in the years to come.”
Established in 2012, the Morgan Park Boys & Girls Club exists in the former Holy Name of Mary elementary school with about 10,000 square feet of space for children to learn, play, study and grow. The club services Morgan Park, Roseland, Pullman and Washington Heights communities of the greater Chicago area. It has an average daily attendance of more than 50 children.
Flexan operates two facilities in the Chicago area—including its medical device/silicone rubber subsidiary FMI Inc. Flexan also operates a plant in Suzhou, China.
