A Holly, Jolly Coller Christmas Party

Coller Industries enjoys spoiling their employees!

And we all love accepting it, especially at the annual Christmas party!

Each year, every employee at Coller Industries is privileged to be included in an annual Christmas party. This event includes a luncheon that is catered by a local hotel. There are games, presents and of course wonderful conversations.

Because we love name tags so much, every year, each employee receives a personalized gift. This year the gifts were monogrammed with the traditional CI logo and adorned with a custom Christmas tree tied with a festive personalized ribbon with each name engraved into it. The mugs were also filled with delicious goodies.

We also received a very nice duffle bag with the CI logo printed onto it. And every child who came to the party received a hand-chosen gift just for them.

And this year, for the first time ever, we had a special guest show up: Santa Claus! All of the children loved sitting on his lap and singing with him about reindeer and snowmen.

Gary Coller (President): “The best thing about the Christmas party is celebrating the season with my employees and their families. For many of them, this is the only time I see their spouses and children. Year after year I get to see their families grow and it’s a great feeling to think that I play a small part in their success.”

And especially the Coller family and our office manager, purchasing agent and receptionist, Eboni, Audra and Kylie N., for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees. And here’s how we say that thank you!

 

CreelaBelle (Content Writer): “There was definitely a feeling of camaraderie. I could tell everyone there had a huge amount of love and respect for the company, and as a new employee, that means a lot.”

Slim (Quality Control): “This year’s Christmas party was awesome! The food was better. I thought the venue was much better this year too. I had a great time!”

Melanie (Graphic Artist): “I really enjoyed the food at this year’s party, especially the fish. The company gifts were very nice, and I liked the overall atmosphere of the event – ‘formal’ but relaxed. This year’s party ran very smoothly, and I look forward to enjoying another one next year!”

Happy Halloween from Coller Industries!

Trick-Or-Treat and Happy Halloween from Coller Industries!

happy halloween from coller industriesNot only do we make and sell the best Halloween name tags, signs and ribbons, but we also know how to celebrate! Every year our company looks forward to our annual employee costume contest and potluck. And each year the costumes and food get better!

In past years employees have dressed as werewolves, cartoon characters and more. This year no two costumes were alike. And we had outstanding participation! From a gnome to a banana and even our own resident Forest Gump, the costumes were well chosen and planned out. Some of the costumes were incorporated to fit exactly to the person. Our social media manager came as a social butterfly and an employee named Rainbow came as Rainbow Brite! And, as always, we love to share our festivities with our customers. So, here are all of the costumes!

Every employee cast their vote for their favorite costume. And, each winner received a stock place award ribbon for their efforts. The first place winner also received a gift card in celebration of their hard work!

The company potluck this year was a build-your-own taco bar. Employees participated by bringing taco toppings such as lettuce, cheese, olives, tomatoes and even jalapenos. We all had a choice of taco shells, tortillas and even taco bowls for a salad. Of course, there were sides such as healthy black beans, chocolate covered marshmallows that looked like Frankenstein’s Monster, homemade peanut butter cheesecake, and a wonderful red drink concoction that bubbled and fizzed. No one went hungry!

We also had a reverse trick-or-treat from our marketing department to all our employees. Treats were passed out to everyone, even a couple of visitors. Coller Industries had no shortage of fun and sweets this year!

Annual Donation: Granite Education Foundation

Every year Coller Industries makes an effort to recognize its employees during the holiday season. Part of this recognition tends to extend into the surrounding community. And, in turn, this translates to donations to various parts of our community. For the past six years, Clyde and Gary Coller, the CEO and President, respectively, of Coller Industries Incorporated have generously donated monetary benefits to The Granite Education Foundation.

The Granite Education Foundation provides access to resources that improve educational outcomes.

Granite Education Foundation Annual Donation

The Foundation provides educational opportunities for Granite School District students. They educate students, teachers and members of our community on positive ways to impact the community.

This year the $10,000 donation will go toward several programs.

One of the largest parts of this generous donation will go toward the annual Santa Sacks.

Celebrating the holiday season can present financial challenges for many families. GEF’s Santa Sacks program is designed to help 2,000 under-served families lighten this load. Santa Sacks provides children, grades Pre-K through 6th, with a fun filled gift sack packed with clothing essentials, a hat, warm gloves, a book and a small toy. Santa Sacks allows the community to come together and celebrate the season of giving.

“It makes us more responsible in the community,” said Gary Coller. “Hopefully our customers appreciate when they see that we give back to our own community.”

Another large part of this donation will be given to the Excel Gala program.

Each year, GEF supporters gather to recognize outstanding teachers, administrators and community members whose personal commitment and contributions impact the 67,000 students in the Granite School District. During the Gala, “The Excel Award” is bestowed upon nine teachers and one administrator that have been nominated by school administrators, colleagues or students. Presentations are made by nominees while enjoying dinner, silent and live auctions which raise funds for valuable programs and services that GEF sponsors throughout the year.

The remainder of the donation is to be split between student aid, need based programs and even the general GEF fund.

Coller Industries Incorporated started donating to the GEF in 2009 and to day has donated over $37,000. We are happy to continue our annual support of this wonderful foundation. And as employees here at Coller Industries, it is a pleasure knowing that our employer is so generous with their time and money.

Happy Halloween from Coller Industries!

How was your Halloween? Coller Industries celebrates this holiday every year by encouraging our employees to participate in a costume contest. In past years we’ve had people dress as witches, movie characters and animals. This year, we had a variety as well. Here are pictures of everyone who participated! We all had so much fun!

AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS!

As part of the festivities, we also had a company potluck. This year we had chili dogs and everyone brought something to go along with them. There were salads and veggie trays and of course sodas, chips, cookies and even cupcakes. It was a great time here at Coller Industries.

Summer Fun In The Sun with Coller Industries

Every year, Coller Industries Incorporated honors a job well done for their employees by hosting a summer party and barbecue. This year the party was held at a local park here in Utah. There was fun for all ages and the employees were encouraged to bring their families. Food (BBQ) was provided and there were games and a bounce house for the kids.

R&R Barbeque

Hats off to the catering company (R&R Barbeque) for providing the overly delicious food! We had the whole spread: BBQ ribs, chicken wings, beef brisket, mashed potatoes and gravy, baked beans and rolls.

Many of the employees were able to attend this year and were happy to have been included. While we’re not about tooting our own horns, as we like to focus on the needs of our customers, we would like to give a shout out to Coller Industries and the Coller family for providing such a wonderful activity for our employees. And here’s how we say thank you!
