Rowmark's founder, the late Fred Kremer, was quoted as saying, "Leadership is best demonstrated by giving back to others." He led by example and was very active in the Findlay, Ohio and Hancock County community, especially with the local United Way agency. Today Duane Jebbett, a protégé of Mr. Kremer, and the senior management team carry this vision forward.

All employees are strongly encouraged to “give back” to those who are less fortunate. Fred's philanthropic influence is clearly seen, heard and felt throughout the building today, as it is an important part of our company culture.





Rowmark encourages its employees to participate in company-sponsored community efforts. In fact nearly every employee at Rowmark is involved in at least one charitable organization as volunteers, committee members or as board members. Rowmark is or has been represented on the boards and committees of over 20 non-profit organizations (listed below) in our community. Charitable involvement has proven to be a great way to build leadership traits in the employees of Rowmark. Our employees benefit from the rewarding experience, the company benefits from the skills the employees acquire, and the non-profit organizations benefit from the involvement and volunteerism. Rowmark and its individual employees have been recognized multiple times for our commitment to the community.

In August of 2007, Findlay, Ohio experienced the second worst flood in the community’s history, when the Blanchard River crested at more than 7 feet above flood stage. The flood destroyed and damaged a number of homes, schools and businesses throughout the Findlay downtown area and Hancock County. The employees of Rowmark rallied in support of clean-up and rebuilding efforts for their co-workers affected by the flood, and the community at large. Rowmark closed its facility so our employees could provide desperately needed assistance to its employees and community members devastated by the flood. This included cleaning supplies, labor, appliances and furnace units. When disaster strikes, taking care of our work family and community must come first!
