With the New York Botanical Garden as its backdrop, the American Jewish Committee will honor Jay Ringelheim, President of Global Equipment Company as well as companies Bull’s Eye and Reddy Raw at a tribute event this upcoming June.
The AJC is an organization committed to Jewish Advocacy on a global scale that was established in 1906. The group has a long history of fighting for the rights of Jewish people but also to end discriminatory practices in all forms. The organization, now in its 111th year, is presenting these awards to honor human relations and corporate leadership.
Mr. Ringelheim will be receiving the AJC’s prestigious Human Relations Award for his hard work and dedication to the Jewish Community in Bridgeport, CT since 1990 while working for Globe Equipment Company; a family owned and operated business since 1938 with deep ties to the surrounding communities. Globe is focused on providing top quality products to local and non-local businesses both in the Bridgeport area and around the world. They entered the e-commerce market in the mid 2000s, bringing their business to an international level with customers on every continent except Antarctica. The two keys to their success are longevity and sustained growth. Mr. Ringelheim said, “The first key is our employee longevity. Our employees have an average of 15 years of employment with Globe. The second key has been managed growth from a broad range of customers.” Mr. Ringelheim says the community has always been a big part of Globe Equipment’s success whether they are supporting local religious institutions of all sorts, fire and police departments, charities and schools. When asked about receiving the honor from the AJC, Mr. Ringelheim stated that he “considered it a great honor from a great organization. The work they have done and the work they continue to do is vital for Jewish Advocacy. I am proud to join the list of past honorees.”
Reddy Raw has been delivering food products of all categories to restaurants with speed and efficiency for 69 years. Reddy Raw provides products from companies such as Cavendish, Perdue, Hatfield and Pilgrim’s Pride as far as Washington, DC and Upstate New York. They’re longevity is a testament to their corporate leadership, saying they have “never sacrificed on our responsibility to accept manufacturers’ products, and then to pass them along in the same pristine condition in which they were received.”
Based in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Bull’s Eye is a company dedicated to achieving their client companies’ marketing and advertising goals “in a way that sustains competitive advantage.” They represent disposables and supply manufacturers and market these products by targeting specific markets and coupling sales calls with on-site visits to customers. Their field sales team has over 100 combined years of experience. Bull’s Eye has customers as far north as Maine and as far South as South Carolina and has been representing companies since 1997. They serve markets including government, entertainment, country clubs, restaurants and colleges and universities.
All three honorees will receive their awards at the event at 6:30pm on June 22nd at the Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
