Trinity Metals, Indianapolis and Giampaolo Group, a metals recycling and management company based in Brampton, Ontario, are contributing $30,000 to the flood relief efforts of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels (HOKC).

“Trinity Metals Foundation is honored to work with the Giampaolo Group and their amazing Foundation to support the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels,” says Wade Conner, CEO of recycling firm Trinity Metals. “The commonwealth of Kentucky has always been an important part of our success and it is only fitting that we support the flood relief efforts.”

According to a news release from Trinity, both companies are key players in the commonwealth’s metals industry, which employs more than 25,000 Kentuckians. Giampaolo recently invested in two recycled-content aluminum production facilities in Kentucky.

Trinity has long-standing business relationships with many manufacturers and recycling companies across the state. This April, the company foundation contributed to tornado-related emergency relief in Kentucky.

“The Giampaolo Foundation and Group is vested with the commonwealth and its residents through our new flagship manufacturer, Matalco in Franklin and Shelbyville,” says Chris Galifi, CEO of Giampaolo Group. “We want to support where our employees, our most valued resource, live. Kentucky has really taken a one-two punch since December, and we see that HOKC has the history, impact and foresight to use these funds where they are most desperately needed.
