Supports Veterans through Workshops for Warriors
Recognized as the world's leading manufacturer of precision tools, Starrett has donated over $100,000 of Precision Measuring Tools to support Workshops for Warriers, a non-profit entity whose mission is to place veterans and wounded warriors into advanced manufacturing careers.
President and CEO of The L.S. Starrett Company, Doug Starrett, said: “We are honored to be a partner with Workshops for Warriors. Manufacturing is the backbone of America and, with over 600,000 US manufacturing jobs that remain unfilled, there is no better time than now to take advantage of talents of the thousands of returning veterans. These men and women who have put life and limb on the line to defend our freedoms believe in this country and deserve the opportunity to acquire new skills as they reenter the civilian workforce.”
Doug Starrett continues, “Our founder, L. S. Starrett, understood the importance of job creation. He would be proud to have our American heroes using Starrett tools as they pursue the American Dream they fought to preserve.”
Workshops for Warriors does this by providing industry-leading training, nationally recognized portable credentials, work experience, and job placement to veterans. Their goal is to rebuild America’s advanced manufacturing workforce, one veteran at a time. Training is provided at no cost to veterans.
