• Regal Gives Back Globally

    January 12, 2017

    Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, announced a summary of its 2016 company and employee community contributions.

    Regal employs more than 25,000 across the world, and the company not only converts power into motion to help the world run more efficiently, the company seeks opportunities on a global level to help those in need. The company and its employees often donate time and money, giving back to the communities in which the company employs throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.

    Recently, the company donated $10,000 to the Italian Red Cross in support of those impacted by earthquake activity in the fourth quarter of 2016 (and the most powerful earthquake in Italy since the ‘70s). Approximately 50,000 people were displaced due to the earthquake. Donations made to the Italian Red Cross have helped the organization provide food services, medical support, medicine distribution and psychological assistance to those in need.

    Regal’s support also recently reached a local orphanage in the Zhangzhou, China, community. Employees held and participated in a charity auction, with all proceeds benefiting the orphanage, and the company anticipates holding similar events in the future to support the community. In Australia, employees donated gifts and non-perishable food items to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal, Australia’s largest Christmas gift appeal, to benefit families and individuals in need. In other areas of the United States, the company’s employees provided more than 150 gifts to a Salvation Army Annual Angel Tree, a total of $1,675 in gifts for a local family as part of an adopt-a-family program and gifts for 20 children as part of a holiday adopt-a-child program.

    These are just a few of the many efforts the company and its employees supported on a global level, reaching many in need.
