Community OutreachCommunity outreach efforts help Loos and Company make a difference in our local area, and beyond. This activity includes contributing financial donations directly to organizations in need. An example of this is our activity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the course of the pandemic, Loos and Company prioritized employee health and safety while also giving back to the community during financially difficult times. We helped our Pomfret community by setting aside $50 for every COVID-19 vaccinated employee to donate to local organizations. These donations have gone to various groups such as charities, food banks, fundraisers, senior centers, and veteran-run organizations. Read some of our press releases about these activities below.

Loos & Co. Donates to Wildlife Conservation
Pomfret, CT, March 17, 2022 — A coalition of conservation and local sporting groups is the recipient of high-quality cable and hardware donated from Pomfret’s Loos & Company.
The wire and cable manufacturer is proud to have recently donated to the Thames Valley chapter of Trout Unlimited, a national freshwater conservation organization.
TVTU is working with the Pomfret Rod and Gun Club, Putnam Fish and Game, Eastern Ct. Sportsman’s Club of Ashford Fin, Fur, and Feather of Chaplin, and the Stafford Fish and Game club to try to maintain and improve the quality of recreational fishing in our area.
“We’re encouraged by Trout Unlimited’s sense of tradition and sustainability,” said Loos Director of Corporate Marketing Robert Davis. “We’re pleased sportsmen in our local towns are interested in catch and release fishing, and it’s fulfilling for us to help them in that mission.”
Loos & Co. donated stainless steel aircraft cable and cable attachment sleeves.
These durable and long-lasting products will be used with posted signs advocating for fishing catch and release. The cable and assemblies will be attached to a pair of needle-nose pliers for fishermen to pinch down barbs on their hooks and safely return fish to the water.
“We deeply appreciate the generosity from Loos & Company,” said Steve Gerling from the Thames Valley Chapter. “We are working to place these signs at heavily fished areas in our part of Windham County.”
Loos & Company firmly believes in the importance of helping those in and around the Pomfret, Connecticut community. This includes fish and other wildlife, but also Connecticut women and girls, Pomfret seniors, and Danielson veterans.
Over the past year several monetary donations were made to these local organizations.
“While our cash donations have been very well received, it is serendipitous to be able to donate our products locally to an organization in need,” Davis said. “From military jets to freshwater fish, Loos makes cable and cable assemblies for multiple applications.”
