Mechanical contractor and fabricator Andy J. Egan Co. (Egan) is celebrating 100 years in business through year-long donations to area charities that will total $100,000. Each month, from February to November in 2019, the company will select a different West Michigan charity to receive a $10,000 contribution.
“For 100 years, the West Michigan area has blessed us with continuous work, and because of that, we’ve had a hand in constructing so many of the region’s iconic buildings,” said Tom Jasper, chairman of Egan. “But we recognize that physical structures are not the only way to build a community. There are so many organizations doing amazing work to make this region a wonderful place to live and work. We want to thank them for their contributions and help make an even bigger impact.”
Egan has been a part of the Grand Rapids community since its establishment as a heating company in 1919, by Mr. Andy Egan. After Mr. Egan’s death in 1932, the company’s Vice President and longtime employee, Harold Jasper, purchased the company. Since that time, it has remained family-owned and today is led by the fourth generation of Jaspers. The past 100 years have added a suite of services to the business, including mechanical contracting, Design-Build, fabrication, controls, construction technology and 24/7 service. Egan has installed and renovated the mechanical systems of some of the region’s largest and most complicated projects, including the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, JW Marriott, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Van Andel Institute and DeVos Convention Center, to name a few.
To be considered for one of the $10,000 donations, Egan is asking area charities to complete an online questionnaire. The application period begins at 8 a.m. on Monday, January 14 and will run through 4 p.m. on Monday, January 28, 2019. To be eligible to receive one of the $10,000 donations, an organization must have a current 501(c)(3) tax-exemption and be a non-profit located in and/or serving the West Michigan community.
Following the entry period, winning organizations will be announced monthly at www.Egan100.com, as well as on the company’s Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram pages. For more information on the Egan $100k Community Giveaway, visit www.Egan100.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
