Athol, Mass.-based L.S. Starrett Co. has donated more than $100,000 worth of precision measuring tools to support Workshops for Warriors, a nonprofit entity with a mission to train and place veterans into advanced manufacturing careers.
“Manufacturing is the backbone of America, and with over 600,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs that remain unfilled, there is no better time than now to take advantage of talents of the thousands of returning veterans,” said Doug Starrett, president and CEO. “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 re-enter the civilian workforce.”
