OSG recently announced that it is donating over $85,000 in new tooling to the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL, Joliet Junior College and the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL to support their manufacturing technology programs.
As part of this effort, Mike Grzybowski, OSG Regional Manager, delivered over $30,000 worth of tooling to the Manufacturing and Machining department of the Business and Technology Division of the College of DuPage. Included with the tooling donation was other OSG training aids including wall and pocket decimal charts, catalogs and safety glasses.
“By giving these cutting tools to the colleges, OSG is providing students with the opportunity to be trained with industry-proven, high quality tooling, and OSG also enables the schools to save valuable funds that are not always available,” said Grzybowski.
Grzybowski met with Jim Filipek, the Associate Professor and Program Coordinator at the College of DuPage, who will be teaching students with the tooling from OSG.
“This action by OSG allows us to train the work force of tomorrow with the tooling of today,” said Filipek.
The manufacturing programs are vital to train a skilled workforce for the future, and OSG is committed to helping shape future manufacturers.
