The global carbon black manufacturer employs more than 70 area residents at its facility in Borger, TX

Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. (NYSE: OEC), a leading global supplier of specialty and high-performance carbon black, announced its intent to make a sizable donation to Hutchinson County United Way to support local residents impacted by Winter Storm Uri. Orion operates a carbon black manufacturing facility in Hutchinson County’s largest city Borger, Texas and employs 70 area residents.

“We have had the privilege of being a part of the Hutchinson County community for the past 93 years,” said Corning Painter, CEO of Orion Engineered Carbons. “We want to support our neighbors through this difficult time, and we are honored to support the local community in partnership with the United Way.”

The donation to Hutchinson County United Way will help fund multiple non-profits working to address the most pressing needs of the county. Many local residents are still facing hardships following a blast of winter weather that caused significant disruption and damage across the state.

“We’re grateful to have Orion as a neighbor,” said Julie Winters, executive director for Hutchinson County United Way. “Orion’s contribution will help us deliver targeted relief to those that need it most in our community.”

The United Way in Hutchinson County focuses on education, health, and income. Their goal is to assess, on a continuing basis, the need for human-service programs in the community, and to assist in the development of new or the expansion or modification of existing human-service programs.
