Community Involvement

We Give Back

Two of our core values get to the heart of our relationships with each other and the communities in which we live, work, play and worship:

  • We practice stewardship
  • We lead by example

We believe that God has blessed each of us with amazing qualities, skills and potential to do great things. We are thankful for these gifts and strive to be good stewards of all that we have been given. We believe in working hard and giving back to one another and to those around us.

An Uplifting Festival

Loenbro was a driving force behind the 2006 creation of Downpour, a free, volunteer-driven music festival started, organized and supported by members of the Great Falls community.

Downpour is a nonprofit organization committed to breaking down barriers between churches and sharing the gospel. Local businesses, churches and individuals contribute money, material and time to make this annual event a success.

Year after year, many employees from Loenbro, which has its corporate office and a large shop in Great Falls, volunteer their time at the two-day event.

Helping Those In Need

When our colleagues find themselves in a time of crisis or hardship, we are ready to help. The Loenbro Employee Assistance Fund (LEAF) was started to offer financial assistance to employees in times of special need.

The assistance program:

  • Has registered as a nonprofit organization
  • Allows employees to make a tax-deductible contributions
  • Sees employees’ donations matched by the company

Many Loenbro employees donate to LEAF, but all employees are eligible to apply whether or not they have contributed to the fund. Applications are confidential and any assistance granted is a gift, not a loan, and is not required to be repaid.

Do Good Friday

Do Good Friday was launched at Loenbro headquarters in 2016 to provide more information on ways employees can help the community.

Paula Highlander, Loenbro’s talent management coordinator, said organizers wanted employees to have the opportunity to see the many different ways they can contribute to their community.

Employees are encouraged to make a Do Good Friday presentation or invite representatives from community groups. Employees with ideas for community projects are encouraged to bring it up at a Do Good Friday gathering.

Supercar Super Team

In 2015, Loenbro and Chip Ganassi Racing partnered to support a two-car team in the Red Bull Global Rallycross series.

Our company and community includes many racing fans, and two of the biggest are Paul and Jon Leach. They started racing as kids and dreamed of owning their own race cars someday.

Behind the success of our Supercar drivers, Steve Arpin and Brian Deegan, our team builds the Loenbro brand among decision makers looking for industrial services and millennials looking for careers in our industry.

Steve has made several trips to Montana on his own time to visit with local racers and racing fans young and old to “give back” for their support of his racing endeavors.

In the Schools

In visits to colleges, universities, trade schools and gymnasiums where students from high schools and elementary schools gather, Loenbro professionals talk about their fun careers and the application of science and technology in their daily lives.

We love the wide-eyed reactions from young students when they see phased array detectors find flaws in a thick piece of pipe or hear how our electrical instruments work.
