State Representative Mike Dovilla (R–Berea) was joined today at the Ehrnfelt Recreation Center by Strongsville Mayor Thomas Perciak, City Council President and Economic Development Committee Chairman Mike Daymut, and other officials to recognize two Strongsville businesses for their service to the community.

Representative Dovilla presented commendations to AkzoNobel Paints, LLC and Momentive Performance Materials to recognize their recent work on two community service projects designed to enhance the lives of the Strongsville’s youngest citizens.

“At a time when capitalism and the private sector are under assault by some, I am pleased to have this occasion to recognize two model corporate citizens,” said Dovilla. “AkzoNobel and Momentive not only employ more than 700 hard-working northeast Ohioans, but with these projects have again demonstrated their willingness to invest in Strongsville and its citizens.”

AkzoNobel, whose North American headquarters are in Strongsville, and their employees contributed over 600 hours of volunteer work to refinish the Castletown Playground to provide local children with a safe place to play. Momentive, which recently invested in a $6 million expansion of its Strongsville production facility, and their employees volunteered at Camp Cheerful to relocate and restore buildings as well as reconstruct the sensory trail bridge used in the therapeutic horseback riding program.
