2016 Ride for Roswell
TMP Rides for Roswell for the Fourth Consecutive Year
Members of the TMP team, family and friends participated in 2016’s The Ride for Roswell. Our dedicated team of more than 40 riders was able to raise over $20,000 for cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
It was a hot one with temperatures breaching the 90 degree mark. But we didn’t let the heat slow us down. We had more riders and ended up surpassing our donation total from the previous year.
We were extremely proud to have the opportunity to participate in the charity ride. TMP Technologies would like to thank all of its participating riders and the supporting friends, family members, suppliers and partners who sponsored and contributed to 2016’s The Ride for Roswell.
Summer Youth Internship Program
The Applicator Company Fosters Youth Through Mayor’s Internship Program
TMP Technologies once again participated in Mayor Byron Brown’s Summer Internship Youth Internship Program, which places young people, ages 14-21, in worthwhile internships in a variety of industries. TMP Technologies had two Erie Community College students join their team for six weeks. They worked on the plant floor performing a number of various manufacturing activities. The student interns learned about the responsibilities and tasks of the different departments at TMP Technologies. They assisted fellow TMP team members, participated in all aspects of day-to-day operations and gained valuable experience along the way.
This is the second straight year TMP Technologies has participated in Mayor Brown’s program. We look forward to bettering our neighboring communities by involving the youth and opening avenues of opportunity for them through the manufacturing industry.
