JAX Men (and Women!) Wear Pink

JAX Refrigeration kicks off its Real Men Wear Pink campaign on Friday, September 22. As a Real Men Wear Pink participant, CEO Mark Lowery has committed to a 30-day “Pink Out” to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

To announce the “Pink Out”, Fridgie will be making an appearance outside of the JAX Refrigeration headquarters in his signature pink, to help raise community awareness for the campaign. A Banner of Hope has been placed in the JAX Refrigeration break room to recognize loved ones who have been impacted by cancer, and on Fridays, JAX employees are encouraged to wear pink and participate in the weekly awareness activity.

Mark Lowery has pledged to raise at least $2,500 and committed to personally matching any donations in order to bring JAX’s total contribution to $5,000.

Please help us support this wonderful cause by making a donation at www.JaxCaresPinkOut.com. Then, cheer on the JAX walking team as our Pink Ribbon Racers participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 21.

Through The Grapevine

You’ve probably already heard about how much we believe in our JAX Family – in the quality of our people, their values and hard work that help make our company great. But you don’t have to take our word for it, so check in here for the latest on what people are saying about us.

We acquired and installed a new Viking oil pump for one of our clients, who was thrilled that our team worked together to get the job done quickly, even if the primary contact was out of pocket. In fact, he felt the only way the pump could have gotten in place any quicker was if we “had parachuted it in.”
