Company donates $2,500 to Jonathan’s Place and hosts employee appreciation party
(DALLAS – October 25, 2022) Geomet Recycling, an innovative metal recycling company, celebrates five years of successful business growth this month. The company, founded in October of 2017 by third-generation metal recycling professional Richard Goldberg, has committed to donating one cent for every ton of metal it has recycled over the past five years.
Geomet has chosen Jonathan’s Place, a Garland-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe place for abused and neglected children, to receive a $2,500 donation on behalf of the company and its employees. To honor the hard work and dedication of its staff, Geomet also hosted an anniversary party where it treated its employees to catered food, drinks and gave out prizes.
“The last five years have been filled with plenty of ups and downs for us as a company but one thing has remained constant: our team’s commitment to the success of the organization,” said Goldberg. “We are grateful to everyone who has played a part in our growth and hope to continue to serve the community for many years to come.”
Geomet has experienced massive growth in the last 18 months despite navigating through a global pandemic. The company increased its revenue by more than $70 million and added just under 20 employees to its organization. As a result of its rapid growth, Geomet was honored in the Dallas Business Journal’s Middle Market 50 awards which recognize the fastest-growing companies in DFW with annual revenues between $10 million and $1 billion.
As a metal recycling company known for its ability to establish strong relationships, Geomet has made important strides to create stronger ties with the local and industry communities. Its employees regularly volunteer with the Garland school district, and Richard was recently appointed as the lead advocate for Women in Recycling by the ISRI Gulf Coast Chapter, where he is an active member of the board.
Company culture has also been an important initiative for Geomet, which has spent the last five years making its facilities a place where people enjoy going to work every day. This includes creating opportunities for long-term career growth and facilitating open lines of communication between employees and leadership.
“To find a metal recycling company so genuinely invested in its people is rare in this industry,” said Geomet Director of Human Resources Veronica Hernandez. “I believe Geomet’s continued success is a direct result of its unique company culture.”
