AVX Donates $15K to Help Fund a New Splash Pad Park


As a longtime resident of Fountain Inn, AVX proudly supports the city’s continued efforts to enhance community vitality

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. – AVX Corporation donated $15,000 to help fund the construction of a splash pad park in Fountain Inn, South Carolina, which has been home to its corporate headquarters since 2010. The Fountain on Main splash pad park, presented by Greenville Water, is free to the public and conveniently located in the heart of the city’s fast-growing downtown area, which features a variety of shops, restaurants, and a farmer’s market — all within walking distance.

In honor of its corporate support of the splash pad project, which was initiated by the Leadership Golden Strip — a collaborative effort between the Fountain Inn and Simpsonville Area Chambers of Commerce — AVX was recognized with a logo-emblazoned sign that was affixed to a wall at the Fountain on Main site during the official grand opening event held on August 21. In addition to the splash pad, Fountain on Main also features benches, shaded seating areas, convenient parking, and a mural commissioned by Greenville Water.

The splash pad also features lighting elements for evening enjoyment and is now open daily from 8:00 a.m – 11:00 p.m. Water shoes are recommended and all children under 12 years old must have adult supervision at all times.
