Danko Arlington. was a 2005 recipient of the Mayor’s Recognition Awards presented by Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley and the Greater Baltimore Committee for demonstrating significant corporate leadership and service for improving the quality of life in Baltimore City.
The award luncheon was held the Wyndham Baltimore Inner Harbor Hotel on December 9, 2005 and emceed by Scott Garceau of WMAR-TV Channel 2. Also in attendance was M. J. “Jay” Brodie President of the Baltimore Development Corporation and Donald C. Fry, President of the Greater Baltimore Committee.
Danko Arlington has started its own initiative to hire and train valuable foundry skills to ex-offenders, recovering addicts, and formerly homeless men. The company casts commercial and defense components used for high tech fire control systems, radar, tanks, and ships.
According to Mr. Danko, “The real amazing story is that formerly addicted and homeless men living on the streets of Baltimore are now producing valuable weapon systems for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan!”
Danko Arlington plans to continue its expansion and to capture a major market share in its high quality commercial and military sand casting niche. Included in this vision are substantial efforts to rebuild Baltimore City and fight American poverty by creating one new job a time.
