Indium Corp. recently participated in the Special Olympics Airlift, which provides transportation to over 1,500 athletes from all over the country to the 2006 U.S. National Games in Iowa. Indium donated its corporate jet to ensure that athletes were delivered safely to and from the games.
That’s great, some will surely say, but why hype it on the Web site of Circuits Assembly? A valid question, one that has an equally valid answer. Because it is my belief that companies are competitors not just in the business world but also in less obvious pursuits such as citizenship and stewardship.
I like hearing of displays of corporate generosity. I think that the good press given to efforts like those championed by Greg Evans and the folks at Indium will in turn inspire or otherwise motivate others to do likewise. So I will continue to shine the spotlight on those companies that chose to share their good fortune with others. Bravo, Indium!
