Teams that Weld Together...
Tekna’s product development “from innovation to realization” model plays out in every aspect of our business. We encourage our people to continually learn new skills, expanding the boundaries of their functional roles. We also believe in helping them do this by investing in professional development that is both relevant and fun!
We decided to try something a little different this year and chartered a custom welding class with Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Over a five-week period, a group of nine designers and engineers gained exposure to commonly used manufacturing methods including: MIG, TIG, Plasma, and Oxy-fuel cutting and brazing processes. Coursework was divided between classroom lectures and shop time with welders.
The result? New friendships forged (pun intended). Knowledge gained. A great time had by all!
