BIG DAISHOWA, Customers Give Back to Local Schools

Hoffman Estates, IL – BIG DAISHOWA issued nearly $30,000 in tooling certificates to high schools, vocational schools, colleges and universities through its Tools for Schools program.

To give back to the local communities, BIG DAISHOWA customers selected a school of their choice to receive a tooling certificate valued at 20% of qualifying orders from November 2022 through January 2023. The certificates are redeemable for any BIG DAISHOWA product including best-in-class tool holders, boring tools, cutting tools, workholding products and presetters.

“We are committed to workforce development. This program allows our customers to support local communities by providing their future workforce with the same tools they use in their shops. By using BIG DAISHOWA tooling in school, students gain experience with the same tools they will use as future engineers and machinists,” said Jack Burley, President & COO of BIG DAISHOWA. 

As part of its efforts to address the skills gap and support workforce development, BIG DAISHOWA is a sponsor of GCAMP (Greater Chicago Advanced Manufacturing Partnership), supports local robotics league competitions, participates as a student-friendly exhibitor at industry trade shows and hosts students at its headquarters.
