Imco General Construction
Part of Imco’s corporate mission is to strengthen communities in which the company works. Imco employees are encouraged to learn about the communities where they work, and to build relationships and give back in ways that will create lasting, meaningful effects. Examples abound of Imco’s community service.
In 2014, Imco donated over $100,000 to charitable causes that include an organization that provides shelter to women and children from abusive homes, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and new facilities and programs at the Bellingham PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center. Imco CEO Frank Imhof serves on the governance committee of the PeaceHealth Foundation board, and co-founder Patti Imhof is on the board of directors.
Imco volunteered countless hours of labor and equipment for emergency efforts, including search-and-rescue efforts, immediately following the Oso mudslide in 2014. Imco also created an employee-match program directly supporting Oso victims, which raised over $12,000.
When Imco began work on the city of Everett’s water-pollution facility, the company volunteered equipment, manpower and refreshments over one weekend to Housing Hope, provides affordable housing and other services for low-income Snohomish County residents.
Also in 2014, superintendent Joe Lupo held a jobsite tour of Imco’s $30 million water-treatment plant project in Lynden for a group of area high school students interested in the construction industry.
While fires raged in Eastern Washington last summer, Imco donated $2,500 to the Okanogan County Community Action Council when they were in urgent need of funding. This money helped people throughout the region keep their homes running, feed their families and sustain their way of life while emergency-response teams battled the fires around them.
