This has been presented every year since 1966. Selection for this award is based on the nominee’s overall contribution to the betterment of York through their service in various capacities.

Those nominating Collins Aerospace noted how in the past year, “Collins contributed to the initiative addressing the housing crisis in York and was instrumental in creating a STEM lab at the York Middle School. Over the past year, the team members at the plant have been involved throughout the community with mentoring youth and helping with community projects.”

Through its legacy companies, Collins Aerospace has been a part of the York community for over four decades, having opened their doors in 1982. “While there have been several names on the front door over the years, what has never changed is the hard work and dedication of its employees to the people of York and the surrounding areas,” say those who nominated the company.

“Whether you’ve served in the United States Armed Forces or flown on a commercial aircraft, there is a good chance a part made here in York was on that flight with you,” nominators said. “Collins’ York site specializes in precision machining operations to make parts for key aircraft components, such as the Ram Air Turbine for emergency power and the Integrated Drive Generator for primary electric power. And its workforce is dedicated to ensuring you arrive at your destination safely.

“Collins sees the future here in York and has increased their presence through community engagement. The company is working to develop future engineers, machinists and leaders through a state grant to start a STEM classroom for seventh and eighth graders at the York Middle School. And Collins continues to play an active role in the community through activities like Yorkfest, Panther Prowl, the York County Fair and many others.”
