By honing much-needed skills and passing them down throughout generations, we are all able to achieve and enjoy an excellent standard of life – and we are incredibly grateful for their talent and hard work.

Michael Gortenburg and Scott Asner, Founding Principals of Eighteen Capital Group (18CG), a real estate-focused private equity firm located outside of Kansas City, Missouri, are honoring the men and women whose skills and hard work continue to uphold our nation following National Tradesmen Day.

Founded by Irwin Tools in 2011, National Tradesmen Day is a time to honor the men and women who work in skilled trades to keep our nation running smoothly and efficiently. Whether serving as mechanics, electricians, landscapers or in other fields, the day celebrates tradesmen of all types and their contributions to communities at large.

Today, skilled trades are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the workforce and among the most in-demand of professions – with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting high levels of growth and need across all virtual fields of tradesmanship in the years to come.

Scott Asner and Michael Gortenburg wish to do their part to support tradesmen during this pivotal time for the field and seek to encourage future tradesmen as they embark into their profession.

“It is so important that we take the time to show appreciation for the professionals who work hard – day in and day out – to keep the world running,” stated Michael Gortenburg. “Without the dedication and skills perfected by these individuals, our nation would not be what it is today.”

Growing up heavily involved in the auto-repair industry and later in construction, Michael Gortenburg holds a unique understanding of the value that hardworking tradesmen bring to society.

Similarly, Scott Asner has a long-held appreciation for construction and home-building – choosing to pursue that interest in his work developing multi-family homes with Eighteen Capital Group.

“The talents of tradesmen often go unheralded, but they provide the very foundation for our daily lives,” stated Scott Asner. “By honing much-needed skills and passing them down throughout generations, we are all able to achieve and enjoy an excellent standard of life – and we are incredibly grateful for their talent and hard work.”

“To acknowledge these individuals – don’t just honor them for National Tradesmen Day, pay respects every day,” added Gortenburg.
