It is with deep regret that we are writing this to you, the public, in response to a recent comment shared on a former employee’s personal social media page. The comments that were made were that of the individual alone and do not represent the views or beliefs of our company or the almost 400 other employees that work here.
We want to make it very clear, we as the Fitzgerald family and as a company, do not support, condone or accept racist remarks or the suggestion that harm be done to another individual in any way, shape or form. Over the last 30 years, we have valued our morals, fair business practices and safe workplace environment above all else and will continue to do so in the future.
We have taken all necessary steps to ensure that this mindset and behavior will not be tolerated. The individual who made such comments will no longer have the opportunity to misrepresent our company with their personal views, as they are no longer employed or associated with Fitzgerald Glider Kits.
We have also made it clear to all of our employees that going forward, if they themselves misrepresent our company, in person, on the internet or in any fashion, their behavior will not be tolerated and action will be taken quickly.
As we have in the past, we will continue to support the men and women who work alongside of us everyday, our customers who continue to support us and all of those who work hard towards a better and brighter future for America.
-Fitzgerald Glider Kits
