KE-TV: 15 Workers at Middletown Company Make 600-Mile Bicycle Trek
Think your company takes wellness seriously? The folks at Phoenix Contact
in Middletown have a cafe serving healthy food, a fitness center and annual wellness fair on site, which serves as U.S. headquarters for the German-based developer and maker of electrical and electronic technology products for a variety of industries.
Wait, there's more. Last Thursday, 15 employees hopped on their bicycles
and headed for the company's new facility in Ann Arbor, Mich., for a grand opening on Wednesday. The 600-mile trek may become an annual part of the company's wellness initiatives, as there has already been talk of starting in Ann Arbor next year and heading back to Dauphin County.
The company documented the entire trip via video
. Here's a look at their first day, which started down Front Street and over the Market Street bridge before taking their first step in Boiling Springs.
