Ken Peters, president of Trans-Tech Industries of Brewer, Maine was recently presented with the 2008 Governors Award for Volunteerism by Governor John Baldacci at a ceremony held at the State House in Augusta.
The citation reads in part, ‘For the past ten years, Ken Peters has made not only a personal commitment, but also a business commitment to assisting the community. Private sector donations to the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter have increased, largely due to the behind-the-scenes support and leadership of Mr. Peters and Trans-Tech. In addition to financial support, employees of Trans-Tech have donated many hours helping the shelter’s staff.
‘We congratulate Trans-Tech Industries, Inc. for its being recognized as a perfect example of small business stewardship and community service.”
Trans-Tech was also recognized for its support of the Salvation Army, Good Samaritans Agency and numerous activities benefiting the residents of Brewer.
