East Moline Glass is proud to once again sponsor the 2018 Walk For Wishes right here in the Quad Cities. This year marks the 6th year participating as a sponsor for this wonderful cause. Last year alone, Make-A-Wish foundation granted over 700 wishes for children with critical illness. We are very excited to support the program to help give both the children and their families, as well said by Make-A-Wish, "medicine in the form of hope". Please click on the link below to donate to your Illinois Make-A-Wish foundation or to join us May 12th at Niabi Zoo for the Walk For Wishes.
EMG recently donated and completed a remodel to the front of the Rock Island Youth Hope building with some new storefront and operable windows. A big thank-you was sent from some of the group in this fantastic picture! We think they look pretty happy with the changes.
Progress is moving forward at a good pace. EMG started on site with this project in late February 2016 with Knutson Construction Company as the General Contractor. Our key team members include Dennis Keppy as the Project Manager as well as our foreman on site, Jeremy Peiffer.
The glass is Guardian's SNX 51/23 and is installed into EFCO's curtainwall. The wave wall will receive custom horizontal sunshades as well (photo updates will follow!). Use the link to access a local news update on the project and see some of the glass getting set.
Each year, Ryan Companies evaluates their subcontractors for safety and performance. This year, East Moline Glass was invited to attend the yearly Safety Award meeting with Ryan Companies' Des Moines branch as the guest of honor. Ryan recognized EMG as a company that went the extra distance to ensure proper safety precautions were being followed during the 2013 year. Specifically at our recently completed Beaver Creek building in Des Moines. The PM on Beaver Creek was Rick DeBlieck and our project foreman was Jason Benge. Way to go guys! Keep up the good work team.
