Duperon Recognized With Award

Duperon Corporation has been honored by the board of directors and staff of Saginaw Future Inc. with an Economic Excellence Award for outstanding contribution to the economy of Saginaw, Mich., in 2018. The Economic Excellence Awards recognize Saginaw County development projects that were assisted by Saginaw Future Inc. The awards celebrate the growth of local and regional economy that includes job creation and retention, new investment and community development. Duperon was presented with the award at a luncheon at the Horizon Conference Center, Saginaw on February 22.

“We are grateful to be so closely connected to the Saginaw community” said Mark Turpin,  Duperon President. “We fundamentally believe that business is a force for good. This award is a special honor because it acknowledges the impact that business can have on the community. A business provides a job and that job brings the dignity that comes from providing for ourselves and our families through the efforts of our own labor. But the impact goes far beyond the individual to all that he or she touches, blessing our community and regions. We have always been humbled to be engaged in this aspect of business and it truly drives us here at Duperon.”
