Brenden Crowe, grandson of Barry Lassiter, Director – EHS&S with MFG Chemical in Dalton, Georgia, is seen here holding a check presented to the Muscular Dystrophy Association by the Chattanooga Fire Department. $84,063 was collected during their annual MDA fundraising events. Brenden, 9, was diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy in 2010 and is the local Good Will Ambassador for the MDA.

The Chattanooga Firefighters raised more money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association than any other fire department in the state of Tennessee.

Money raised locally helps MDA provide support for patients and their families with world class health care at MDA clinics, access to summer camps and support groups, and assistance with medical equipment.

MFG Chemical Hosts Dalton State Organic Chemistry Students

Posted by on Sep 30, 2015 in Press Releases | Comments Off on MFG Chemical Hosts Dalton State Organic Chemistry Students

Recently MFG Chemical had the privilege to host Dalton State Organic Chemistry Students at our Kimberly Plant. “The goal was not to bore the students to death” said Richard Underwood, “but to educate them on what they should expect if they decide to pursue a chemical degree.”

Roughly 50 students attended the first meet & greet with plans to continue this program next year.  With Dalton State now offering  a Bachelors in Chemistry and over 100 students official declaring it their majors, an introduction to the real world application of chemistry is something students are missing in their academic careers.

Dalton State College was chartered in 1963 as Dalton Junior College by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, and in 1967 opened its doors to 524 students as the 24th institution in the system.  Through its almost 50 years of commitment to higher education Dalton State continues to grow, now offering 20 Baccalaureate Degrees.  Dalton State’s commitment to the community shows when in 2010 its economic impacted on North West Georgia reached $108 million.  Even with such a large financial influence, Dalton State, for the 5th consecutive year, was voted one of the most affordable 4-year schools by the U.S. Department of Education.

MFG Chemical has always had the growth of the Dalton community as a top priority.  We hope to continue our relationship with Dalton State in the years to come.

MFG Chemical Reaches Out to Dalton Public School STEM Programs

Students observe the first steps of water treatment

On May 11th, three chemists from MFG Chemical had the pleasure of spending the day at Brookwood Elementary School teaching real-life chemistry and applications. Anthony Daniell, Richard Underwood, and David Hays gave an energetic presentation to six classes full of 4th and 5th graders as they explained concepts of solubility, how soap and dye carriers work, bonding properties of atoms, and polymerization mechanics. If that sounds daunting it’s because chemistry often gets stereotyped into an “impossible-to-comprehend” category and then people get scared of it. MFG wanted to show how simple these chemical principles can be if students start early with imagination and an open mind.

Brookwood is currently the only northwest Georgia elementary school that is STEM certified (Science Technology Engineering Math) and is gaining a reputation for pushing the boundaries of scientific education. Dalton’s future depends on new generations being able to handle STEM concepts and continue a tradition of excellence in manufacturing and technology. MFG is happy to have started a partnership with Dalton Public Schools to inspire young people in chemistry.

Here are a few un-edited excerpts from the 5th grade thank you letters:

Thank you gentlemen for coming to our school and tell us about the MFG Chemical. You three showed us that we don’t need to fear chemistry and that it was easy.

My favorite parts was when Mr. Daniell was talking about how soap helps take out the parts of oil or dirty stuff off your body.

I loved learning about the mer family. I think the activity where we had to link and relink hands with other people when initiators came along was really cool.

Senciraly, Parker

I learned today about Chemistry. Some of the stuff I already knew but, mostly everything I learned it from you guys. I never knew that Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Carbon all had hands and the hands can connect to each other’s hands.

I think you changed my mind. I feel like I want to be a chemist now.

Sincerely, Saul

Chemistry is very interesting. Like Mr. Underwood said, if you think of chemistry in a goofy way you will understand it more…

Sincerley, Jacky

Q-What is Carbon’s favorite song by the Beatles? A-“I want to hold your hand”. Ha ha ha. It’s funny how things in chemistry are not as complicated when you think silly. I think you should do this next year.

MFG Chemical Supports Wellness Program for Employees

At MFG Chemical, we provide a Wellness Program for all of our employees. The program rewards each employee for their efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve their quality of life, which in turn reduces the cost of medical expenses incurred by the employee and company. One key component to the plan rewards current employees who “kick” the tobacco habit with a check for $500. Since the plan’s inception in 2014, three employees have successfully completed the program.

President Chuck Gavin presented the checks to employees Leah Goforth and James Tinch. Brenda Shults also completed the program but was unavailable for the picture.
