PECO's employees participate in the Week in Motion

PECO Pallet Week in Motion

Dates: August 31 - September 6, 2020

Location: Companywide

PECO employees had an awesome experience participating in a “Week of Motion” to benefit Home for Our Troops. This event provided a great avenue for us to stay actively engaged in our Company Values, staying fit and active as a family, providing a challenge for those up for it with the 4X4X48, and most importantly giving back to those who served. Doing all this during this challenging time with COVID provided a much-needed team building outlet for PECO as well, which added to the overall fun and excitement throughout the week.
