Making Headlines: Owens Corning Recognized by National Organizations
One local business has been making headlines across the nation this year
Though it’s always good to be a business, resident or visitor to the Toledo Region, one local business has been making headlines across the nation this year.
Owens Corning, an insulation, roofing and fiberglass company based in Toledo, recently added three more titles to its already long list of achievements. Computerworld named Owens Corning No. 2 in its 2020 Best Places to Work in IT, recognizing the company for fostering a spirit of teamwork, diversity, training and innovation. Additionally, Owens Corning ranked No. 1 in 3BL Media’s list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens for the second year in a row. Finally, Owens Corning was named on the Fortune 500 list, coming in at No. 431. Owens Corning has remained on the Fortune 500 list every year since it was established in 1955. That’s right – that means 66 years as a Fortune 500 company.
To earn these three very distinct recognitions doesn’t just mean Owens Corning is making shareholders happy – though it’s doing that, too. It means that the company is leading in environmentalism and transparency, maintaining a great work culture, and growing all the while. The Toledo Region is lucky – and proud – to have such a strong and positive presence in the community. As it always has, Owens Corning is making it in the Toledo Region.
