Halco is proud to have participated in the Finger Lakes Works’ 7th Annual “Finger Lakes Works… with their hands” career fair where students could learn a variety of skilled trades. The event was held in Senaca Falls on October 4 where nearly 600 high school students from 23 school districts were in attendance.
Hal Smith, owner of Halco, is a former committee chair and current chair for The Finger Lakes Work Force. As such, he was pleased to work with the area youth at this great event. Smith believes that helping students gain more hands-on experience is a great way for businesses to grow in the future.
“I am so proud to have been a part of the board that founded this event seven years ago. As a chair of the Finger Lakes Work Force, I am happy to play a role in such an influential event as this. If we can impact one student’s life, it has been well worth the investment,” said Smith.

Soldering and brazing.
Electric conduit bending.
A renewable energy seminar.
Engraving the students’ names on a 6x6 sheet of metal using a plasma cutter.
