Hunter donates to area college

AFS Corporate Member Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation (Schaumburg, Illinois) presented a donation of $5,000 to the manufacturing technology program at Harper College (Palatine, Illinois).

The program’s main objective is to decrease the shortage of skilled labor.

In 2019, Hunter personnel taught a basic metalcasting foundry class to high school students in LaBelle, Florida, and assisted AFS on Manufacturing Day. At both events students were able to make their own castings, creating a hands-on experience.

“We want to excite young people about jobs in the industry” said Bill Hunter, CEO, Hunter Foundry Machinery Corp. “This donation to Harper College’s Manufacturing Program is another way to help address the skilled labor shortage.”
