Best of Both Worlds: Nonprofits and Manufacturing Sectors
Over 20 MBA students and staff from King University recently toured Strongwell to gain better insights on the sector of manufacturing.
During the students’ visit, Keith Liskey (Senior Advisor) provided an operations and product presentation on the advantages and benefits of using FRP as a structural non-metallic alternative to steel, aluminum, and wood. He also reflected on the application of executive business acumen from manufacturing to the nonprofit sector. To do so, Keith drew from his own experience as Senior Advisor to the Birthplace of Country Music and Senior Advisor to Strongwell.
Meghan Carty (Corporate Director, Supply Chain and Strategic Pricing), Todd Berthold (National Accounts Sales Manager), and Barry Myers (Corporate Director, Marketing and Communications) provided a facility tour to showcase the pultrusion process which Strongwell uses to manufacture finished industrial goods for the global market. In addition, the students were shown the supportive roles of how engineering, R&D, and corporate operations interpret and use data and information to support the manufacturing process as a whole.
As an eager advocate of promoting manufacturing and fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) within the community, Strongwell would like to thank Dr. Emilia Suggs (Assistant Professor of Economics – King University) for coordinating and visiting with Strongwell.
