Douglassville, PA (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
American Crane & Equipment Corporation, an Eastern Pennsylvania based manufacturer of overhead electric cranes and hoists, invited a group of 35 Exeter High School students to tour their facility in honor of Manufacturing Day, Friday, October 3rd. Exeter High School, located in Reading, PA, has implemented a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (or S.T.E.M.) based program into their curriculum and has asked American Crane, along with other local businesses to partner with them to support this innovative initiative.
After learning more about overhead cranes, hoists and their applications, the students took a tour of American Crane’s six manufacturing bays. They walked through areas where activities such as material preparation, machining, welding, electrical assembly, shipping/receiving and engineering occur daily. In addition, the students learned about manufacturing job titles like machinists, fitters, electricians, mechanics, as well as electrical, mechanical, welding and structural engineers and designers.
American Crane will continue to be a resource for this invaluable educational program, offered for the first time this year by Exeter School District.
