At Kennedy Valve, we believe that being a good corporate neighbor not only helps us contribute to the well-being of our beautiful community of Elmira, New York, but it also helps us create important connections within our community. And it gives us the chance to bond with our co-workers over a purpose greater than ourselves.

That’s why we encourage our teams to actively participate in programs that give back to our local community.

Kennedy Valve has been a cornerstone of the Elmira community since 1907. We have a longstanding relationship with the local United Way chapter, and many other local organizations have also benefited from the hearts and hands of the Kennedy Valve team. Here are just a few examples:
