MADE Career Pathways feature Hydro-Thermal Corp
Hydro-Thermal recently participated in the second annual MADE (Manufacturing, Automotive, Design and Engineering) Career Pathways Expo 2016. The event aims to raise awareness and educate high school students about the diverse opportunities available in manufacturing around the Waukesha area.
Approximately 1,000 students attended the expo. All are enrolled in CNC, engineering, manufacturing and welding classes at their high schools. To help entice the students, Hydro-Thermal staff demonstrated the orbital welder and also displayed product cutaways, various internal parts, and the EZ Heater Skid system.
This year more than 30 companies participated including HUSCO, Quad/Graphics, Trace-A-Matic, and more. The event was sponsored by the Waukesha County Business Alliance and was held at the Waukesha County Technical College.
Hydro-Thermal staff worked on two shifts to cover the day-long deluge of inquisitive students. Staffers included, engineer-Avito Saghu, quality lead-Bill Rheingans, business development engineer-Frank Pizzitola, former shop interns, now part-time staff-Jordan Glazewski and Kayla Ellis, and welder-Mark Kwiatkowski.
Aside from the throngs of students that attended, the MADE Expo also welcomed some non-student special guests. Waukesha Mayor-Shawn Reilly, County Executive-Paul Farrow, and Department of Work Development Secretary-Georgia Maxwell all showed up to lend their support to the cause.
