August 28, 2018 —Dometic, Elkhart, IN, is no stranger to creating solutions that users can rely on in mobile environments. From climate, hygiene & sanitation systems, to power and control equipment and safety & security solutions, Dometic’s mission is to make mobile living easy—whether you’re on a truck or on a workboat.
Now the company is lending a helping hand to make living easy by creating a home for its fellow man.
The company recently held the second annual Habitat for Humanity panel build at its Elkhart, IN, headquarters. The partnership with Habitat for Humanity began last year when one of its own employees applied and was selected to have a house built by the nonprofit organization.
The opportunity enabled the Dometic team to rally behind their fellow employee, participate in the build and support a great cause. The experience was so life-changing that Dometic decided to continue working with Habitat for Humanity and extend its community/charity works—with plans to do more panel builds across additional locations over the next few years.
This year’s panel build was for Maleka Beard, a resident of Elkhart County.
The build took place in the parking lot of the Dometic headquarters with over 50 Dometic employees volunteering to help.
“We are so excited that we could contribute to the beginning stages of building a house for a second year in a row,” says Scott Nelson, President of Dometic Americas. “Working along-side fellow employees and the future homeowner, Maleka, is an incredible opportunity that I am proud to be a part of. We cannot wait to see the finished home and wish Maleka well on her new journey.
