Yesterday was ride your bicycle to work day at AERO Specialties! Approximately 50% of our 30-person strong workforce participated with the remainder carpooling. There were only a handful of cars in our parking lot. Commuting distances ranged from only a couple miles up to 20 miles. For everyone that rode or carpooled, a free lunch was provided by the president, Matt Sheehan. Thanks, Matt, we appreciated it and considered it a success!
Encouraging bicycle commuting is a win-win scenario for AERO. In an effort to create a more green workplace (akin to our diesel-electric hybrid ground power units and Eagle electric aircraft tugs), AERO employees are taking an active role to reduce emissions, improve their health and save on fuel expenses. Healthy, alert employees are proven to be more successful at their jobs – important for our GSE manufacturing standards. We want to provide you with the best equipment possible and are taking proactive measures to ensure the quality of our precision-driven manufacturing processes – all while saving the environment and money.
More AERO bicycle commute days are currently in the works. We are excited to encourage more employees to ride for the next event and hope to increase participation.
