“Our decision to donate is based on our belief in the college’s mission statement “Preparing students for success in a diverse and globally connected world”.  Access to the resources of a dependable and relevant educational program, such as Moraine Park, is paramount to our success”, Steel Craft Corporation.

Moraine Park Economic’s and Workforce Development department has partnered with Steel Craft Corporation in Hartford, WI to provide them with performance-minded business solutions.  Moraine Park is working with Steel Craft to understand their needs as a company and their desire to build a skilled, high performance workforce.  In return Steel Craft believes in the education of our students and in Moraine Park’s mission, because they have seen the value our instructors bring to their workforce.  That is why they generously decided to donate materials needed to support the education of Moraine Park’s students.


With the shortage of skilled workers and the demanding needs in the Manufacturing industry, Steel Craft partnered with Moraine Park to help train the skills necessary for the company’s success.  Kelly Wendorff from Steel Craft had this to share, “Our partnership has opened doors for Steel Craft in several ways. We have enjoyed meeting with your staff and students to discuss ways to grow and strengthen our workforce.  Our partnership has allowed us to voice our business needs to your staff and administrators. Finally, we have used Moraine Park’s staff to help train and educate our current workforce by hosting Blueprint reading classes, brake press training and classes in Microsoft Excel!”

With Steel Craft participating in over 14 training with Moraine Park this partnership has just begun. Wendorff stated, “Steel Craft’s future growth will be constrained by our ability to recruit and train skilled labor. The shortage of skilled labor will force companies to train the skills necessary to succeed.  We believe that investing in our employees returns the dividend of employee and business success.”

Then we recommend solutions that help you move your business forward. Learn more about partnering with Moraine Park for customized training by calling 920-924-3449 or email
