Roll-Kraft, Mentor, Ohio, has announced that Account Manager Patrick J. Hopkins has been selected to be a part of the Young Professional Council, sponsored by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl. (FMA). The council's mission is to identify, create, and establish mentoring and networking opportunities to reach potential entrepreneurs, business owners, and those interested in a manufacturing career.
The group provides speakers for manufacturing conferences, local schools, and other events to enumerate the advantages and benefits of being involved in the manufacturing community. Often the group works directly with school guidance counselors to answer questions and challenge America's youth to investigate the field of manufacturing. Their effort is to dispel the old stereotypes of dirty and dangerous factory workplaces and expose them to the updated, modern factory floor with automated systems and clean working conditions.
Roll-Kraft is a producer of tube and pipe tooling and roll forming tooling with locations in Mentor; Frankfort, Ill.; and Woodbridge, Ont.
