Airline Hydraulics Corporation (Airline), an industrial manufacturing distributor located in the heart of Bensalem, PA, hosted a team-building initiative to encourage fun and create an impact on a local nonprofit, Fostering Hope Bucks County. They achieved this by building and donating over twenty children’s bikes.

Instead of the traditional team-building methods, Airline decided to harness its core strengths, pitting its managers against one another in a friendly competition to construct a fleet of children’s bicycles. This bike-building initiative encouraged team interaction but also offered support to a local nonprofit, Fostering Hope Bucks County. Fostering Hope Bucks County is a nonprofit organization wholeheartedly committed to enhancing the lives of local children in the foster care system by equipping them with vital support and resources.

This donation signifies the beginning of a year-long commitment to giving back, aligning with Airline's celebration of 75 successful years in business in 2024. Commenting on the donation and upcoming anniversary, Mark Steffens, Airline CEO, remarked, “We have chosen to celebrate our 75th year by giving back. We realize the greatest part of our business is the people. So we are not having a big party or giving away Rolex watches. We have chosen to pay it forward. Our donation to Fostering Hope Bucks County exemplifies our starting efforts.”
