EXAIR Founder’s Day 2023

EXAIR celebrates Founder’s Day each year on February 22nd (or the closest working day) in order to commemorate the birthday of our founder, Roy Sweeney.  He founded the company in 1983 and drove EXAIR to become the strong, successful and innovative company that it has over the years.  Roy led EXAIR for 33 years.  Today would have been his 89th birthday. It’s hard to believe that he’s been gone for almost seven years, but his commitment to helping others lives on through all of us.

We make this day a celebration and a day to mark our ongoing commitment to the service of others in keeping with the values that Roy and his wife Jackie felt (and feel) very strongly about.  We continue to look outside our company, outside ourselves and outside our immediate surroundings to do what we can to improve the world around us.  And we urge others to do the same. 

This year, we have selected these organizations to receive donations as part of our Founder’s Day celebration:

In addition, EXAIR has also established an Employee Volunteer Program that enables every full-time employee with at least 90 days of service to volunteer with organizations of their choice during the normal work week with full pay by EXAIR.  We urge everyone to work collectively with organizations in our community to improve the lives of those in need.

As we celebrate Founder’s Day today, we wish Roy a happy birthday.  We miss him.  We remember what he and his wife did for all of us and for countless others.  And we pledge to continue his commitment to helping those who need it.

Happy Founder’s Day 2023 from everyone at EXAIR!
