We have always believed in education. Without a good education, the future does not improve. We do more than believe in it, we support it.
We have worked with universities to provide torque tools to help with their mechanical engineering programs.
One of the schools we helped is the University of Washington. Their race team was on the rise. Three years prior to our help they finished 13th nationally. The following year they finished 8th.
The head of the program at the time said that our tools helped them make design changes in the frame that they never would have been able to make using the tools they had prior to ours.
In 2013 the Washington Huskies race team finished first in the nation and took 4th overall in Germany in the international competition.
We are not claiming or implying that the Huskies won because of our tools. They won on their own accord. The Huskies won because they are good engineers. But even the best engineers need tools that help them realize their full potential and make the changes they needed to win.
We are happy to be a part of the University of Washington race team's success. We are also excited to be a part of the graduate's success in the business world.
