Continuing its partnership with National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC), Greenlee, Rockford, Ill., recently donated over $50,000 of products and equipment to Boston’s new 103 IBEW training facility.
Boston’s 103 IBEW is currently in the process of building a new addition to its training facility. Expected to open soon, this new addition will feature state-of-the-art technology and equipment to enhance students’ learning experience. Greenlee’s donation consisted of bending, wiring and pulling equipment, including a Mobile Bending Table, a Power Fishing System, an Ultra Cable Feeder and a Super Tugger Puller Package.
As part of its partnership with the NJATC, other electrical training centers nationwide have also been receiving new program materials and equipment. Over the next five years, Greenlee will support the creation of new curriculum and modules for NJATC training centers, and provide product endowments to allow students to utilize the best tools for a hands-on education.
In a press release announcing the donation, Scott Hall, president of Greenlee and Textron’s Industrial Segment, said, “This is the largest donation of Greenlee product to a single training facility. We’re proud of our partnership with NJATC and the great work they do to provide training for our next generation of electrical workers.”
