In recognition of extraordinary support of employees who serve, Davis-Ulmer Sprinkler Co. was awarded an Above and Beyond award in January. The Syracuse, N.Y., office was awarded by the New York Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a U.S. Department of Defense office.

This award is one of three of ESGR's employer recognition awards, given in limited numbers by state committees. This marks only the sixth presentation of the Above and Beyond award to a company in the state of New York.

Davis-Ulmer has several Army Reserve personnel working and 47 known veterans. As a precursor to the company's receipt of the award, Davis-Ulmer COO Ed Priest, an Air Force and Air National Guard veteran, was presented with ESGR's Patriot award last fall in recognition of supervisor support of Guard and Reserve service members.

The Above and Beyond award was developed to publicly recognize American employers that provide extraordinary support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered the nation's call to serve. Supportive employers such as Davis-Ulmer, an APi Group Inc. subsidiary, are critical to maintain the strength and readiness of the nation's Guard and Reserve units.
