Eagle receives 'Successful Business' Citation Award

Eagle Industries received a citation award from the New Bedford City Council for their successful business operation in the city since the company's arrival in November 2007.

During the presentation ceremony at last night's City Council meeting, the company was publicly commended for their business efforts in the community, their contribution to the local economy and for providing 350 manufacturing jobs in the area.

"In this day and age where jobs are hard to come by and production such as the work being done at Eagle Industries could just as easily be farmed out to companies abroad, we take time to thank Eagle Industries for taking a dark time in our City's history as it relates to the events that surrounded this facility, and have in turn, provided our people with something positive, something very much needed, employment," said City Councilor at Large Denis Lawrence, Jr.

The award marked the second commendation in the past eight months that Eagle has received for their contribution to the New Bedford area economy. The Chamber of Commerce presented Eagle with an "Economic Impact Award" earlier this year.

"We are honored to receive this recognition of our hard work in New Bedford. We take great pride in our employees, our company and our important work for our men and women in uniform," said Vice President of Eagle Industries Scott Carver.

"The highly skilled workforce in New Bedford drew us to this area, and we will continue striving to grow our area workforce and diversify our business. We thank the City of New Bedford for their commitment to our company and for this award."

Eagle New Bedford currently maintains a contract with the Department of Defense, the location's sole customer, for the MOLLE system for the Army. Since taking ownership, Eagle has invested $250,000 in upgrades to the former Michael Bianco facility.

The many improvements include replacing lighting, installing large cooling fans, integrating quality check stations, and increasing the janitorial staff.

The company has also increased wages, added a 401K plan and replaced employees' chairs with ergonomically correct ones for comfort and increased versatility.
