Exemplifying “doing well by doing good,” American Refining Group, Inc. (ARG) recently won the 2015 Pennsylvania Governor’s May ImPAct Award in the Community ImPAct category for the North Central region.
Each year, the ImPAct Award is given to a business showing lasting commitment to its employees’ and surrounding community’s growth and development. Being nominated denotes recognition as an enterprise devoted to “creating jobs that pay.” ImPAct awards also are given in the categories of entrepreneur, export and small business.
ARG, located in Bradford, McKean County, originally developed a charitable strategy to address needs in its rural area. With its demonstrated focus on corporate responsibility to the community and a philanthropic approach instilled in its employees, ARG contributes substantially to the education, economic development, human services and health care sectors.
The company was nominated by The North Central Partnerships for Regional Economic Performance (P.R.E.P.), a statewide network aiming to regionalize and coordinate local economic services to businesses.
“We will continue to advance our community-development efforts … to keeping our dollars local and to give back at every feasible opportunity; this includes encouraging our employees’ community involvement, generosity and volunteerism,” Jeannine Schoenecker, ARG president and CEO, said.
ARG converts crude oil into high-quality waxes, lubricant base oils, gasoline, fuels and specialty products at its state-of-the-art facilities.
