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 community engagement initiatives are grounded in our core values of integrity, commitment, teamwork, quality, and innovation. Through our various programs, we are able to give back through annual giving in the local community, employee-requested charitable giving, and team volunteer grants.
Our Purpose is to Love and Serve OthersOur Story
Our Keystone Charity: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Giving back to our communities and to people in them who need support is part of who we are at Midrex. Every year, we volunteer our time, talents, and other resources to help make life a little brighter in keeping with our pledge to love and serve others. Our partnership with Leukemia & Lymphoma Society allows us to honor Shohei Manabe, a pillar of support and leadership at Midrex for over 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.
LLS is leading the fight against blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma. They fund lifesaving blood cancer research around the world, provide free information and support services to patients and their families, and provide the voice for all blood cancer patients in securing quality, affordable, and coordinated care.
Midrex pledges to continuously explore various ways to support the work of LLS – from DIY fundraisers to participation in organized events including the Student Visionaries of the Year leadership development program and “Light the Night,” a community walk to honor and remember those who have been touched by cancer. Our commitment to LLS will ensure that Shohei’s inspiring story will live on at Midrex for years to come.
