BIG KAISER Presents Donation to NRL at Annual MFG Meeting
At the first general session of NTMA’s annual meeting in Miami, Chris Kaiser, President/CEO of BIG KAISER, presented a donation for $5,150 to benefit the NTMA’s National Robotics League (NRL). This was an increase of more than 25 percent over the prior year.
The donation was the result of a year-end promotion by BIG KAISER, giving back to the association a percentage of every order by an NTMA member company. Manufacturers placed their orders for cutting tools, tool holders and workholding products and were earning funds for the NRL at the same time.
“The promotion was a way for us to support our customers and members in the NTMA, and to promote workforce development and STEM programs through the National Robotics League,” explains Mr Kaiser.
“The NRL is all about the community collaborating together to engage manufacturing’s next generation. We truly appreciate BIG KAISER’s generous contribution and their continued leadership in supporting initiatives to close the manufacturing skills gap,” said Bill Padnos, NTMA Director of Youth Engagement. “We are also grateful to all of the NTMA members who participated in this program.”
