ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and its parent company, Knorr-Bremse, have combined to shell out more than $2.6 million towards tsunami relief efforts in south Asia.
Bendix has been matching employee contributions to the American Red Cross International Response Fund throughout its North American operations. It will continue doing so until Feb. 1 in addition to making a corporate donation.
Knorr-Bremse, meanwhile, is contributing through its newly-established Knorr-Bremse Global Care organization.
“The Bendix and Knorr-Bremse families extend their deepest sympathies to the thousands of individuals affected by this devastating event,” said Joe McAleese, Bendix president and CEO. “We’re proud of the very generous response from our parent, Knorr-Bremse, as well as the enthusiastic and compassionate response of our employees here in North America who have rallied to help in this cause. We are hopeful that our thoughts, prayers and financial assistance will make a difference in the lives of those impacted throughout the extensive recovery and rebuilding efforts in the region.”
