Helping Heroes

With the exciting introduction of our new logo, JE Richards took the opportunity to give back to veterans and their families.

This fall, boxes of JE Richards coats, polo shirts and Tervis insulated hot/cold cups with our former logo, were donated to the Military Order of the Purple Heart. The organization, which protects and funds the welfare and rehabilitation of Purple Heart veterans, does so through the collection of household items, the operation of thrift stores, donation of automobiles and at the community level from the annual distribution the Purple Heart Viola, their official flower.

We are so happy to have been able to give back to those who have selflessly served our country.


Harlan Electric Toy Drive

Harlan’s Administrative offices decided to collect toys for the Metro Nashville Police Department’s Toy Drive/Christmas Basket program this season. The toy drive is part of the Metro Police Department’s 56th annual Christmas Basket Program, a charity drive designed to collect toys and other items for area families in need of assistance during the holidays. This program has served our community well for 56 years and we wanted to help make it a success again this year.

McPhee Family Football

McPHEE Family Football Tradition Continues

On Saturday October 28, McPhee employees, family, and friends were invited to Rentschler Field to enjoy a tailgate and the UConn vs. Missouri game. Over 200 employees and family members joined us to celebrate this annual event of food, family, and football. It was a great time to interact with fellow coworkers outside of the office and field. A big thank you to the McPhee Family for hosting this company tradition.

Harlan Participates in Nashville’s “Preds Pride Day”

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry proclaimed June 5th 2017 as “Preds Pride Day” as the hometown team continued their battle for the Stanley Cup.  Harlan sported their Nashville Predators gear to work in honor of the Nashville Mayor’s declaration of Pred’s Pride Day!
“We want to see Nashvillians of all ages wearing gold to celebrate this momentous time in our city’s history as the Predators skate towards the Stanley Cup,” said Mayor Barry. “Let’s show Pittsburgh and the rest of the world that we are all Smashvillians on Preds Pride Day.”

McPhee Plays Ball and Honors Retirements

McPhee celebrated the hard work and dedication of two employees retiring this summer with a friendly Wiffle Ball game and picnic for its staff.

It was a beautiful day to play ball!  McPhee has hosted a summer wiffleball tournament for years sparking fierce rivalry among employees.  This year was no different as the competitive banter started weeks before the game.  Commercial Project Manager Brian Parent led one team while Utility Project Coordinator Rosemarie Nyborg captained the other.

After plenty of foul balls, base hits, and even one home run, Brian’s team took home the victory in a 6 to 5 score game.  The game took place at ‘The Gene Burube Field’ at McPhee’s campus commemoratively named for a former employee.

McPhee honored Terry Beck, our administrative assistant of over 30 years along with Richard Parsons, our Fleet & Rentals Manager.  Both will be missed and hard to replace. A sincere congratulations and best wishes to Terry and Richard in their days off ahead!
