Spotlight On Our Investors

February 11, 2015

Our quick articles profiling some of our New Vision investors are pretty popular so here is our next installment highlighting three more great companies who support our cause.

alt textMemorial Hospital is one of New Vision's longest standing investors.  Memorial provides comprehensive healthcare services and education throughout Central Washington through an acute care hospital, various primary and specialty clinics, a community health outreach team and a Foundation.  Memorial is the region's largest employer with approximately 2500 employees.  It's vision is to create healthy communities one person at a time.  We are very fortunate that Rick Linneweh (past Hospital CEO) and Diane Patterson have both been able to chair our association's Board of Directors.  Learn more about Memorial

alt textOwens Cycle is also a longtime New Vision supporter.  They have been selling motorcycles, snowmobiles, four wheelers, and a range of power vehicles for over 40 years.  Owens also has great service department and stocks a vast array of parts and accessories for motor sport enthusiasts. 

alt textMayflower Metals is another great company that supports our cause.  Mayflower is a scrap metal recycler with facilities in Prosser and Terrace Heights.  The company accepts steel, copper, brass, scrap iron, appliances, old autos, and more.  One of its specialties is providing metal recycling containers for business.  They can deliver (or pick up) these containers on a moment's notice.  We have enjoyed getting to know ownere Alan and Ben Finch.  Ben runs the Terrace Heights facility and Alan is a regular attendee at our industry roundtable meetings.

Thanks to all our investors for supporting our work to advance the regional economy.
