HWI receives the Fred Rogers Good Neighbor Award

Mar 23, 2017 / HWI News

We pour the same passion and dedication into community outreach as we do the refractory business. Our commitment to community involvement through our “Humanity at Work” team was recently recognized with the Fred Rogers Good Neighbor Award from the United Way of Allegheny County. HWI was one of 13 companies to be honored for its commitment to workplace volunteerism and its service to our most vulnerable neighbors.
