ST. GEORGE — The RAM Company presented a check for $20,000 to the St. George Chamber of Commerce at a luncheon held Wednesday at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Chamber president Gregg McArthur accepted the donation from RAM Company founders Ray and Melzie Ganowsky, company CEO Kevin Ganowsky and vice president of business development Brian McCann.
“RAM Company is the longest-standing member of St. George Chamber with over 41 years of membership,” McArthur said. “This donation is the largest contribution the Chamber has received its entire history, since its creation in 1927.”
Established in 1975, Ram Company is one of the largest manufacturing companies in Southern Utah; the company employs about 240 people.
RAM is an innovative designer and manufacturer of electro-mechanical devices — offering proven engineered solutions to meet the demanding requirements of the commercial, aerospace and space industries.
“We are excited for the opportunity to support the St. George Chamber of Commerce and are more than happy to give back to this community which we love and call home,” McCann said. “We hope to see the tech community in Southern Utah continue to grow and stand ready to help make it happen.”
The funds will be used for the chamber’s new office building on 100 East. The building’s extensive renovation is underway and is expected to be completed in January, McArthur said. The new offices will have a meeting room that seats 100 people and a board room that seats 24.
“Due to the very generous donation from RAM Company we have decided to name the board room the Ram Company Board Room,” he said.
