Litchfield, Minn. — When Allan Cronen, CEO of GVL Poly, an agricultural polyethylene parts manufacturing company, witnessed a close family member’s struggle with breast cancer, he became committed to help others battling the disease.
Allan decided to put his manufacturing know-how and resources to work. He researched and received an endorsement from the American Cancer Society to start a fundraising campaign, called “Harvest a CURE”.
Allan and his staff developed special pink polyethylene parts for combine heads; snout wear points and the Ez View Dust Diverter. Profits from the sale of these parts (as well as branded pink T-shirts and caps) will go to American Cancer Society’s breast cancer research.
The unveiling of the parts and clothing will happen at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., February 16-19.
GVL has created a webpage, www.harvestacure.com that provides more details of the product and clothing specially. Allan plans to continue to promote cancer fundraising campaigns, targeting a different type of cancer.
GVL Poly is a privately held company in Litchfield, Minn. that produces polyethylene components for corn heads and gatherer snouts.
