Big Kaiser Presents 4th Annual Donation to NRL
February 24, 2020
Customers and partners of Big Kaiser Precision Tooling teamed up to generate a $7,283 donation to benefit the National Robotics League (NRL). The amount is nearly 10 percent more than last year and the fourth year-over-year increase in NRL funding from Big Kaiser.
The donation is a 2% match of all qualified orders from NTMA and AMT member companies during the final two months of each calendar year. Manufacturers placed orders for cutting tools, tool holders, workholding and tool measurement systems, earning funds for the NRL at the same time.
“We need to get involved at every level to grow the next-generation workforce. Our company does that by partnering with local schools, our community colleges and the trade associations,” says Chris Kaiser, CEO of Big Kaiser. “NRL is just one more way for us to engage kids and promote careers in manufacturing.”
“We’re not just fighting a skills gap in our workforce, we have an ‘interest gap’ too. The NRL helps create excitement about manufacturing technology and STEM careers,” says Roger Atkins, president at NTMA. “We appreciate Big Kaiser’s continued support year over year, and of course all of the NTMA and AMT members who participate in the program to support the NRL.”
