FabEnCo Named Sponsor of the Year by ASSE Gulf Coast Chapter

Oct. 6, 2007
FabEnCo, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of self-closing safety gates, announced today that the company was recently honored as Sponsor of the Year by the Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). The Gulf Coast Chapter serves 18 Texas counties and is the largest chapter of ASSE with over 1,200 members. “The discussion to decide which company to recognize as the first recipient of the Gulf Coast Chapter’s newly-created Sponsor of the Year Award was very short. FabEnCo is usually the first company to offer financial support for any safety related projects supported by the Chapter,” said Tara Falin, immediate past President of the Gulf Coast Chapter. “We’re proud to be recognized as Sponsor of the Year,” said David LaCook, CEO of FabEnCo, Inc. “Of course, it’s only natural we’d support an organization whose member companies in local chapters around the country are major contributors to FabEnCo’s bottom line. After all, we’re big believers in former Texas Longhorn coach Darrel Royal’s philosophy that ‘You dance with the one what brung ya’. It’s also our way of showing our appreciation to the ASSE Foundation for creating programs like the Medina Scholarship Fund that assists in the education of bi-lingual safety professionals.”
