Viking Pump Celebrates 100 Years with 100 Trees

Essex  – Viking Pump Canada celebrated its 100th anniversary by adding 100 trees to the Chrysler Canada Greenway in Essex, thanks to a generous donation to the Essex Region Conservation Foundation.


“As we started planning the 100th anniversary of Viking Pump of Canada, we considered the longevity of our company and its importance in today’s world,” said Amy Maxey, Business Line Director. “This reflection brought us to ERCA, offering us a chance to celebrate our sustainability and contribute to the sustainability of our local environment.”


Staff from Viking Pump Canada joined volunteers and the Essex Region Conservation Foundation to plant these trees on May 29th along the Harrow section of the Chrysler Canada Greenway. The Chrysler Canada Greenway is a 50 kilometre trail stretching from Windsor to Harrow and east to Leamington. It is part of ERCA’s trails network that includes the Cypher Systems Group Greenway and the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub.


“We congratulate Viking Pump on its 100th Anniversary and thank them for celebrating with an investment in conservation,” said Claire Wales, President of the Essex Region Conservation Foundation. “Adding 100 trees to the Greenway trail enhances its function as a habitat corridor, helps mitigate flooding and the impacts of climate change. This is a demonstration of leadership in corporate social responsibility and enhances the environmental sustainability of our region.”


Viking Pump Canada Inc. has been manufacturing and distributing quality industrial pumps and pump systems since 1924.

 

Since 1977, the Essex Region Conservation Foundation has been raising funds to enrich our region as the Place for Life.
