BAE Systems provides ongoing support for welding program

BAE Systems Inc. has provided $10,000 in grant support for welding materials to be used in welding and metal fabrication programs at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The company is a longtime partner of the college’s welding program, recruiting students for operations in its York manufacturing plant.

It also donated to the college’s welding expansion with grant support and specialized materials, and it is featured at the Copper Level ($100,000 to $249,999) on the Welding Recognition Wall for the expansion project, which increased the size of the welding lab to 55,000-plus square feet.
