January 2015

Pueblo, Colorado, Home of Heroes

The Center for American Values is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with pewag, Inc. USA, beginning in 2015. The partnership is one of the highest levels of sponsorship available at the Center for a period of five years. Both organizations are planning to cross promote branding and messaging on their websites and marketing materials to the public.


Center Executive Director, Joe Aldaz, worked to procure the sponsorship with pewag, Inc. USA. "We are excited about the opportunity for an enduring relationship with pewag, who shares our American values. Their financial support over the next five years ensures we can continue to reach children through character education and meet our mission."

pewag executives and salespeople visited Pueblo in May of 2014 for their annual Group Meeting and Grand Opening of the new pewag manufacturing plant. More than 120 delegates from Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, as well as from the United States and Canada gathered to experience Pueblo’s rich history, food, and the Center for American Values.


"I strongly believe in the values that are portrayed in the Center for American Values and would like pewag to become a long-term "friend" and sponsor starting in 2015" said Mike Uhrenbacher, President of pewag USA. "The pewag Group Meeting in Pueblo and reception at the Center are still resonating very positively in our company world-wide and we are proud supporters of the Center for American Values" he added.

pewag, an Austrian company whose history dates back to 1479, chose Pueblo for their first North American manufacturing facility. The Pueblo plant is the first pewag manufacturing facility outside of Europe. pewag is one of the world’s leading heavy steel chain producers that manufactures a wide variety of products such as traction chains, lifting chains and tire protection chains.
