SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. (PRMI), which funded over $5.4 billion in home loans in 2017, celebrated 20 years in business with a carnival-style celebration for its employees and community partners over the weekend. In addition to providing games, entertainment and plenty of food trucks, PRMI also donated a new communication system to Fire Station 11 of Salt Lake City Fire. The gift comes as no surprise, as strengthening community and business partnerships is at the core of PRMI’s values.
“As we pondered how to celebrate two decades in business, we immediately knew we wanted to do something special for our community to say ‘thanks’ for their support over the years,” said PRMI CEO and President, Dave Zitting. “What better way to show our gratitude to our customers and partners, than by supporting our first responders who make this community a safe place to work and live?”
The upgraded communication system was presented by PRMI Chief Production Officer, Tom George to Salt Lake City Fire Division Chief of Community Relations, Ryan Mellor, during a brief ceremony at Saturday’s event. The new tool will allow Salt Lake City Fire Station 11 to integrate its current split-communication system to better serve its coverage area, which includes Salt Lake International Airport and parts of Salt Lake City. Following the presentation, guests were invited to meet with firefighters and explore a fire engine on display.
“We are incredibly grateful for this donation from PRMI and their support of Fire Station 11,” said Chief Mellor. “The number one thing that goes wrong and causes death for firefighters is a breakdown in communication, so this is an amazing gift that will allow us to serve the airport and our citizens more safely and efficiently.”
After 20 successful years, PRMI is still thinking ahead and planning for a bright future of continued growth and nationwide expansion. “We look forward to the next 20 years in business, and another 20 after that,” said George. “We will never stop working to improve our communities, strengthen our partnerships and help our customers achieve their dreams of home ownership. It’s why we do what we do.”
