Successful month for Martin Engineering Cougar Cares Programme

Martin Engineering has concluded a month-long programme promoting October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The company manufactured a special series of its Cougar® brand DC truck vibrators in the traditional pink colour, and donated US$50 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for each one of the limited edition units sold throughout the month -- a total of US$3750.

“The real value of the Cougar Cares program is raising awareness of the disease and the critical importance of early detection, helping the foundation improve education and survival rates among all women,” said Mark Huhn, Director of the Vibration Products Business group at Martin Engineering. “In addition to the donation to a very worthy cause, doing something different like this got people talking and generated media exposure. It even helped inspire Bonnell Industries to build an entirely pink truck, equipped with a pink vibrator.”

Martin Engineering has a history of support for the Susan G. Komen foundation in recent years, including team participation in the Peoria Memorial Race for the Cure, a Martin Race for the Cure in the company’s home town of Neponset, raffles and a bake sale to benefit the foundation.

“Our company has always felt a connection to this cause,” observed Martin Engineering Chairman Ed Peterson. “Like our family, the Goodmans have roots in the Peoria area. Susan grew up there and returned after getting her degree to marry her college sweetheart, Stan Komen.”
