With Kondex’s continued growth, finding excellent technical talent remains critical to our success, and therefore important to our long-term strategy. An element of this strategy is to develop relationships with targeted university students and faculty to support our recruiting efforts. These relationships have led to internship opportunities, cooperative projects and the hiring of graduates and alumni.
One such relationship Kondex has developed is with the University of Wisconsin at Platteville. On February 15, approximately 50 students and faculty visited Kondex to learn about our history, products, processes, customers and to tour our facility. These participants are enrolled in Introduction to Manufacturing, Metallurgy and/or Metalcasting Technology classes. The visit provided a great opportunity for Kondex to showcase our capabilities and opportunities available to current students and graduating seniors. The feedback we received from the students and faculty was extremely positive! The students are still talking about their visit and the clean environment they saw at Kondex!
