At the start of each school year, Kondex is paired with a group of high school technical education students eager to build a charcoal grill. This year, that school was our own Lomira High School – one of nine high schools participating in Project GRILL (Growing Readiness in Learning and Leading). This program of Envision Greater Fond du Lac aims to attract students to careers in manufacturing by tasking them with building a working charcoal grill from scratch. Students can seek guidance and input from their manufacturing business partner throughout the project in preparation for the big reveal at the close of the school year.
To celebrate April being National Welding Month, Kondex Corporation made donations to the Technical Education programs at four local high schools. The recipients of these $500 checks included Mayville, Kewaskum, Lomira, and Campbellsport High. These resources will be used to acquire steel, general department supplies, or in the case of Kewaskum High, to purchase additional welding helmets.
Kondex was recently named a winner of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ (AEM) 2018 Advocates Program Gold Award. This recognizes the Company’s efforts in advocating for pro-manufacturing solutions and legislation through participation in AEM’s I Make America program.
