Meet Brian and Jaime Smith- There is Always Something for Which to Be Thankful

We live in a very uncertain world right now, but we try to remind ourselves every day that “There is Always Something for Which to Be Thankful.” We can only control what goes on in our own little circles of life and it is more important now, more than ever before, to take the time to say “Thank You” to the people who have made an impact or impression on either our personal or professional lives. We are thankful….

For our Loyal Customers: We truly appreciate your business, and we’re grateful for the trust you’ve placed in us. We are looking forward to another strong year and continuing our joint efforts to add the functionality, beauty, and drama of curved steel to the building and manufacturing worlds!

For our Outstanding Vendors: We are thankful that we have such a strong vendor base to meet, and often times exceed, all of our daily business needs. We value the relationships we have spent years building and hope that 2018 brings continued new projects and growth.

For our New Customers: “Thank You” for giving us a shot to be your steel bender of choice! We hope that your experience was a positive one and that we can continue to service your steel bending needs at the highest level. We are thankful for you giving us the opportunity to show you what we can do for you.

For our Employees: Our employees are part of the Albina family and so many of us have been around for decades battling through the many ups and downs of our economy. We have a very strong team in place right now and we are ready to meet the challenges ahead whatever they may be. We are thankful and grateful for their dedication to the Albina family and the time and efforts they spend servicing our many wonderful customers.

We hope to have the pleasure of doing business with you for many years to come. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you.

We are Thankful for the Opportunity to participate in the Consano Organization- A non-profit crowdfunding

desmoplastic melanoma, that lead to his eventual passing in 2011. Albina is grateful to the Consano
Organization for all of their wonderful work!

that Albina Co., Inc. has donated $10,000 to support the local chapter of the national nonprofit
Assistance League.
The family owned Albina is based in Tualatin and specializes in metal bending and fabrication.
Formed in 1939, Albina is an industry leader in structural steel bending, steel rolling and steel

Assistance League of Greater Portland has provided local philanthropic programs since 1965.
Assistance League’s member volunteers provide four community service programs. The programs
serve children and victims of violence by providing new school clothing, enrichment activities
for troubled youth at a residential treatment facility, personal history books for foster children,
and clothing for women who have been assaulted and must forfeit their clothing in the
emergency room. In addition to grants, sponsorships and donations, funds are raised at Assistance
League Thrift and Consignment Shops at 4000 SW 117th Avenue in Beaverton.

Albina Pipe Bending Kicks Off Annual Toy Drive!

toy_drive
Yes it is that time of year!
The time where we count our many blessings and eat lots of holiday treats! It is also when we look around and see the many, many families less fortunate than ourselves. So in the spirit of giving we begin our annual Toy Drive. This week is the kick-off and runs thru Dec 15th. If your gift is received by Dec 15th the company will match your generosity 100%. Last year was a record year of giving. We were able to donate $2882.00 in toys to The Salvation Army. This has brought uncountable smiles to the faces of less fortunate children.
We look forward to doing the same again this year!

All of us here at Albina Pipe Bending Co., Inc. would like to thank Deborah Wilson for her contribution as organizer of this annual event.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
