Global Plating Company Digs Deep to Give Life Back to Ohio Nature
Ohio based global selective plating company, SIFCO ASC helped protect the future of the local habitat by rounding up the team from its Cleveland site to help remove thousands of invasive plants which were causing a threat to the area.
As part of an initiative to contribute to its local community, SIFCO ASC worked with the Natural Resources staff at Cleveland Metroparks to help remove plants which offered neither shelter nor nutrients to the local animals or insects, merely taking up space or causing damage.
The team spent a day out of the office to get their hands dirty and improve the appearance and natural life of the Blue Heron Boardwalk and Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation for the public.
Invasive species are a significant threat to many native habitats and species of the United States as well as being a significant cost to agriculture, forestry, and recreation. The removal of these species allows native plants to thrive and for the local habitat to grow properly.
Lee Shelton, group managing director of SIFCO ASC said: “Here in Cleveland, we are blessed with the Metro and National Parks right on our doorstep. We feel it is important to give something back by contributing to the upkeep of these wonderful parks. I’m proud of all the SIFCO ASC employees who took part as they all worked very hard and as a team to help make a difference.”
