As a company dedicated to improving the health of our global environment, one of the ways we measure success is not only through customer satisfaction, employee engagement and financial success, but also in supporting the communities in which we operate.
We are proud to invest in and support the following initiatives:
The Barefoot Walk
The Barefoot Walk is an event that raises money and awareness for people around the world who do not have access to basic needs. It provides an experience that aims to educate young people about social justice and empowers them to become active local and global citizens in their communities.
Children's Water Festival
We've worked with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority’s for many years on the Children’s Water Festival - an event designed to help students from Grades 2 - 5 learn about water resources. The festival provides approximately 4,000 children with hands-on opportunities to better understand water protection, water conservation, water science and water technology.
The Hank Vander Laan Scholarship (Western University)
Trojan established The Vander Laan Undergraduate Scholarship in Engineering at Western University in honour of our founder Hank Vander Laan. This award is presented to a full-time student in Year 2 or higher of any program in Engineering who has achieved a minimum 80% average and who demonstrates an academic interest in environmental topics or water issues. In 1976, Hank was a young entrepreneur and bought Trojan Metal Works - a small company located in London, Ontario, Canada. Although fabricating metal toolboxes was the company's mainstay, what caught Hank’s eye was the patent it held on a small, UV treatment unit for homeowners to purify their drinking water.
He immediately recognized the benefits of ultraviolet (UV) light as a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative to chemical water treatment. Based on a vision of transforming the fledgling metal fabricator into a dynamic global company capable of solving complex water problems, Trojan Technologies was born. We’re proud to recognize young engineers with this scholarship named in Hank’s honour.
Luv Your Water
Water is a precious resource that affects everyone, every day. As the world’s population increases, so too does the demand for water. At Trojan, we’re committed to reducing water stress and maximizing this invaluable resource for current and future generations.
Veterans Memorial Parkway Community Program
The Veterans Memorial Parkway Community Program is a partnership between government, business and the community to build a lasting tribute to our servicemen and women along the Veterans Memorial Parkway in London, Ontario. We are happy to be a key partner.
Water for People
Water For People works to build a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and where no one suffers or dies from a water or sanitation-related disease.
Western University - Engineering
Our partnership included the Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Pavilion, which is a new building that integrates modern technology and the principles of environmental sustainability. The facility houses space for student engagement and educational experiences through hands-on design opportunities. It promotes collaborative learning, graduate student educational facilities, office spaces, areas designed to promote informal idea and information exchange and houses laboratories for leading-edge environmental research.
