Keller Engineers Honored
Keller Engineers Inc. was honored with the Governor’s ImPAct Award in the Community Impact Category for the Southern Alleghenies Region in Hershey May 23, 2013. Gov. Tom Corbett addressed the audience of nearly 800 at the inaugural Im- PAct Awards ceremony.
According to Gov. Corbett, the awards program was created to “celebrate and recognize the Pennsylvania companies and individuals that are investing in our workers and helping to move our economy forward.” “Government doesn’t create jobs – it’s the businesses being honored today and the businesses throughout the state that are providing job opportunities for Pennsylvanians.”
The Governor’s ImPAct Awards recognized 50 companies from throughout the state in five categories: Jobs First, Community Impact, Small Business Impact, Entrepreneurial Impact and Export Impact.
Nominations for each award were provided by the state’s regional economic development partners – the Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance (PREP) network. Each of the 10 PREP regions was eligible to submit up to five nominations per category. A total of 250 nominations were received.
Keller Engineers Inc. has been providing civil engineering, structural engineering and surveying services to the public and private sectors since 1991. According to Joe Keller, PE, president, “We are honored to receive this award. Part of our vision statement is to give back to the communities in which we work. We encourage our employees to participate in and contribute to worthy community causes and organizations, and we appreciate being recognized for this effort.”
