MORRISVILLE, N.C. - Aug. 18, 2014 - PRLog -- A team of highly skilled individuals from Anuva Innovations and Anuva Services, two divisions of the Anuva “Design to Distribution” family of businesses based in North Carolina, will be rolling up their sleeves to participate in a Habitat for Humanity of Wake County home-building project. Scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 23, Anuva volunteers will construct affordable housing at The Ridges of Maybrook in Raleigh, NC.

“We strongly believe that in order to make our company successful, we need to help make our community become stronger,” says Anuva Innovations and Anuva Services President Sanjay Patel. “Through community service days such as this, we hope to instill the value of giving throughout our company and community in Wake County.”

This is the second Habitat for Humanity of Wake County project that the Anuva staff has volunteered for this summer. In July, another team joined forces as part of a “component build” project, assembling various components that will be used to build Habitat Homes ahead of time.

“Our company is structured around the principles of teamwork,” says Veronica Fleck, Biomedical Engineer at Anuva Innovations, the product design and development division. “Service projects like this allow us to work with one another in a new setting while applying our individual skills to the greater good of the community.”

According to a recent Annie E. Casey Foundation report, North Carolinian families are still struggling from the impact of a poor economy. Thirty three percent of children in North Carolina live in a family where their parents lack secure employment or have a high housing cost burden. Habitat for Humanity of Wake County builds safe, affordable houses for qualified homebuyers regardless of race, religion, or background. Each Habitat home is built in partnership with homeowner families, sponsors, and volunteers such the Anuva Innovations and Anuva Services team. The homes are sold for no profit to the partner family who repays an affordable mortgage over 20 years.

In addition to Anuva Innovations and Anuva Services’ community-service efforts in Wake County, each year the Anuva team in Brevard County, Fla., helps to raise funds for Ma Krupa, a charity devoted to providing medical care for people in need. Over the past five years, about $128,000 has been raised for senior citizen care, eye and cleft palette surgeries, scholarships, and disaster relief and to fund other life-saving projects.

“Not only do these special volunteering events bring our talented employees and leaders together for a common cause, but they raise awareness of the needs of the underserved in the local communities where Anuva operates,” says Patel.

About Anuva
Anuva (http://anuva.com) is a “Design to Distribution” family of businesses that started in 2008 with the launch of Anuva Services in Morrisville, NC. Anuva Services, a Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council-certified minority business, began by providing world-class after-market and logistic services to customers. Despite launching during a challenging economic environment, Anuva experienced tremendous start-up growth and tripled the space of the facility. Three years later, Anuva further expanded by acquiring a contract manufacturing operation whose roots date back to the Dictaphone operation in Melbourne, FL. In 2011, Anuva Founder Vinu Patel launched Anuva Manufacturing Services and relocated the headquarters to a new facility in Melbourne. Anuva Manufacturing is AS 9100 certified. In 2012, Anuva expanded once again by launching a sister company, Anuva Resource Solutions (www.anuvaresource.com). Anuva Resource Solutions was created to assist Anuva customers needing help hiring talented people who would grow their businesses. Specializing in startups and midsize companies, Anuva Resource Solutions handles each HR and financial outsourcing project with the highest integrity and dedicated, personal attention. In 2013, Anuva continued to expand by acquiring TriE Medical Inc. Rebranded Anuva Innovations (www.anuvainnovations.com), the ISO 13485-certified medical device development division provides design, documentation, manufacturing, and testing services. In early 2014, the acquisition of the manufacturing facilities of Innovative Electronic Solutions Lighting in Morrisville expanded Anuva’s portfolio and electronics manufacturing capabilities even further. These acquisitions create the Design to Distribution vision of our company. Anuva is a US-owned and operated company with a mission to provide a total solution for our clients and employ domestically while making a global contribution.
