Crandall Stats and Sensors took part in 32 hours of training on our ‘new to us’ Haas CNC Vertical Milling Machine, which upskilled six of our employees on this manufacturing technology. Each of the six students were presented classroom training at our facility on programming and hands-on experience using our CNC Milling machine. This equipment allows CS&S to produce quality parts for our manufacturing operations and makes our business more competitive. Incumbent Worker training through The Workforce Connection’s Business Services assisted us in this valuable development for our company and team. We are thankful for the outstanding training instructor, Mr. Gordon Blaisdell of Rock Valley College, and the opportunity provided by The Workforce Connection.
We were pleased to send, on behalf of the employees of Crandall Stats and Sensors a check for $210 to KFACT. Our wonderful employees choose different charities throughout the year. Since February is Black History Month, and we know KFACT works with many students of color, our employees chose to donate to this worthy organization this February. The Mission of KFACT (Keeping Families and Communities Together) is building healthy futures for girls through holistic mentoring. Why girls? KFACT targets girls between the ages of 12 and 18. Early adolescent girls are an extremely vulnerable population and have the hardest time just being a girl! Many girls suffer from peer pressure, low self-esteem, generational poverty, inequality, and often trauma-filled pasts. KFACT has provided services to over 250 girls and their families in this mentoring program. KFACT provides services to girls in middle and high school while ensuring completion of post-secondary education for their college girls. To learn more about KFACT and the great work they do, check out their website: https://www.k-fact.org
CS&S was proud to be one of eleven sponsors of the February 27th WOTM 2020 Scholarship Dinner.
