CWS Recognized Raymond Corp. with Award

GREENE, N.Y. — Over the past 35 years, CWS Packaging has provided fabrication and assembly services to The Raymond Corporation in Greene, N.Y. To show appreciation for the strategic nature and significant longevity of the partnership and for Raymond’s help in enhancing CWS’ mission, CWS presented Raymond with the prestigious and coveted honor of the Sally Merrill Award.
“CWS strives to create a strategic relationship with all of its customers, providing a collaborative effort while simultaneously enhancing the success of the company itself and the mission it serves,” says Jason Lasicki, sales manager for CWS. “Very few relationships have been as successful and as long as the relationship CWS has realized with Raymond. It is out of appreciation and respect for this relationship that CWS presented this special recognition to Raymond.”George Raymond Jr. had gained awareness of the vocational work that CWS was doing in the early 1970s. Raymond Jr. became an advocate for the program, as well as being instrumental in engaging CWS to perform services for Raymond beginning in 1976. In fact, as work flowed between the two firms, the employees of Raymond began to label product from the Community Work Shop as CWS in an effort to save time, thus, giving the vocational program the name itoperates under and is known by today.
The Sally Merrill Award is named after Sally Merrill, who was one of the founding members of the Board of Directors for the Chenango County ARC (dba CWS) and still serves on the board today. Merrill was instrumental in defining the community need that existed for the underserved uniquely gifted population of Chenango County and the surrounding areas. Merrill herself had ason whom benefitted from the program that she helped successfully develop to benefit both the Mission of the CWS, as well as the business community.
