Since 1974, Midrex has been committed to doing our part to strengthen our community, represent our corporate values publicly, and provide our employees an opportunity to connect with the causes that matter to them.

Today, dozens of local nonprofit organizations benefiting cancer, children, and veterans will continue to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars through our charitable contributions. ​

Our Story

Our Keystone Charity: Relay for Life

Shohei Manabe has served as a pillar of support and leadership at Midrex for 25 years. In his numerous executive roles with Kobe Steel, Ltd. Shohei has supported Midrex through multiple industry cycles, achievement of numerous company milestones, and the commissioning of 56 modules around the world. Having spent over 40 years at Kobe Steel, Shohei’s guidance has been invaluable to Midrex in our journey to success.

In January 2012, Shohei received news that would change his life forever. At a doctor’s appointment, Shohei was diagnosed with Malignant Lymphoma and was advised to begin treatment immediately. He knew the road ahead was not going to be easy, but Shohei was prepared to fight. After 8 months of intense treatment, Shohei was declared cancer-free. It was his strength, perseverance and community of support that led him through this difficult time.

To honor Shohei’s can-do spirit and determination, we have established the “Shohei Manabe’s Relay for Life” annual cancer walk in partnership with Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Every May, a team of Midrex employees will participate in a community walk to raise cancer awareness and promote research towards a cure. This annual event will ensure that Shohei’s inspiring story will live on at Midrex for years to come. ​
