Hexagon Metrology received the Futuremakers Partner Award last night from the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) Board. Meeting at Moraine Park Technical College’s West Bend campus, the Board recognized Hexagon Metrology as a local Futuremaker partner in pursuit of developing strong futures and sustainable careers.
WTCS President Dan Clancy and Moraine Park President Gayle Hytrek presented the award to Hexagon Metrology for the company’s contributions to developing economic and educational opportunities within the region.
“We are proud to recognize Hexagon Metrology for the Futuremakers Partner Award,” said Clancy. “The long partnership between Moraine Park and Hexagon Metrology has done so much to support the educational and training efforts of Moraine Park and the communities it serves.”
Hexagon Metrology, formerly Brown and Sharpe, is a worldwide leader in industrial metrology. Thirteen manufacturing facilities, 66 precision centers for service and sales, and a network of 70 distribution partners on five continents, provide the foundations for the success of Hexagon Metrology.
“Hexagon Metrology and Moraine Park’s partnership has been based on a common focus – to serve the people within the Moraine Park District by providing them with the skills they need to compete in today’s marketplace,” said Hytrek. “Hexagon Metrology has provided direct support for many College initiatives, they have donated equipment and software, sponsored special training sessions for students, and served as a resource for local business leaders,” added Hytrek.
“The WTCS Futuremakers Partner award is a special honor,” said Hexagon Metrology representative Rob Jenson. “On behalf of our organization, I would like to thank Moraine Park for this award. Hexagon Metrology really appreciates all of the efforts of Moraine Park faculty and staff to serve our community.”
