Edgetech supports charitable initiatives

Edgetech has supported a series of charitable initiatives which aid both local and global communities.

Edgetech, which together with parent company, Quanex, is committed to championing education and the next generation, donated school supplies to Walsgrave Academy, a Coventry primary school.

Edgetech is also said to be passionate about helping to tackle hunger in the UK, especially in the current climate when people are struggling to afford basic necessities. Consequently, the company’s generous staff contributed 197 items to Coventry Food Bank as part of a global food drive organised by Quanex. Each item was matched by a £5 donation by Quanex, totalling £985.

The company also supported the Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child campaign, which provides disadvantaged children with a box of gifts. Employees were given time off to volunteer at their local Operation Christmas Child processing centre, where they organised and packed gift boxes to be sent to recipients all around the world.

Edgetech has also continued its annual support for industry charity initiatives, including purchasing the Christmas Hope House Children’s Hospice print from GM Fundraising and donating to CATCH Leeds.

Edgetech’s head of marketing, Charlotte Hawkes, commented: “This year, Quanex launched a new initiative: ‘a part of something bigger’.

“As a company, we know we’re part of a much bigger society and community. We are very cognisant of the fact that everything we do has an impact on thousands if not millions of people across the globe and we’re focused on making that impact a positive one.

“As part of that, we’re committed to helping our local area, as well as worthwhile causes worldwide.

“We hope these donations will bring some happiness and security to people who may be struggling during this especially challenging year.”
