Fluor-BWXT President and CEO
Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth (FBP) recognizes the economic challenges facing local communities, particularly those that depend on a primary employer in the regional economy. We are committed to being an active corporate leader to the communities that have supported nuclear and environmental remediation missions at the U.S. Department of Energy Portsmouth site for more than 50 years.
For the past 10 years, FBP has talked with regional leaders, assessed area assets, and reviewed existing studies and iniatives for the site. We designed and continue to use our Community Commitment Plan to contribute to the economic stabilization and growth of the four-county region of influence (Ross, Pike, Scioto and Jackson counties) that is most impacted by site operations
WAVERLY, Ohio -- February 20, 2019 -- Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth’s (FBP) Tim Poe, Deneen Garner and Jack Williams sat down with Tim Hughes of WXIZ radio of Waverly, Ohio recently to discuss FBP’s innovative Community Commitment Fund which provides sizeable donations each year for charitable organizations, educational outreach and economic development in Jackson, Pike, Ross and Scioto Counties.

Attached is an excellent summary of how DOE PORTS Site employees and subcontractors give back to our community. This PORTS Community Commitment DASHBOARD (January 2018) captures company and employee giving and outreach programs for the last four months of 2017.
One of the biggest outreach efforts at the site each year is the Christmas Gifts for Children Program. This incredible volunteer effort has been in place for 25 years and is led by FBP Systems Engineer Gary Crandall. Behind Gary are typically 40-plus volunteer coordinators who put in countless hours to make sure that each child gets the right gift, right in time for Christmas. Just since 2011, generous volunteers have purchased or donated money to provide gifts for more than 18,000 kids in six counties in southern Ohio. Their reach is impressive – their impact immeasurable.
Since the beginning of the DOE Deactivation and Decommissioning (D&D) contract in 2011 Fluor-BWXT and ch2m have reinvested $4.1M in performance fee back into the community.
On behalf of our team and partner companies Fluor, BWXT and ch2M I’m glad to share this update of our educational and community giving programs. Here’s to a safe and successful 2018!
Fluor-BWXT Site Project Director
