Customers who choose best-in-class cutting tools, tool holders and workholding products from BIG DAISHOWA will support their local manufacturing training programs at the same time. Buy Tools Support Schools.
From October 1–December 29, 2023, BIG DAISHOWA will once again donate a tooling certificate valued at 20 percent of every qualifying order to the buyer’s school of choice through the Tools for Schools program. Schools can redeem certificates for any BIG DAISHOWA product, including best-in-class tool holders, boring tools, cutting tools, workholding products and presetters.
Last year’s program was a resounding success: BIG DAISHOWA issued nearly $30,000 in tooling certificates to high schools, vocational schools, colleges and universities. According to Jack Burley, President/COO of BIG DAISHOWA, it’s all in line with the company’s overall mission to support a new generation of skilled workers.
“We are committed to workforce development. This program allows our customers to support local communities by providing their future workforce with the same tools they use in their shops,” said Burley.
To participate in the program:
1)The qualifying minimum order is $5,000 (earning a $1,000 tooling certificate).
2)Place the order through your local distributor and request “Drop-ship from BIG DAISHOWA.”
3)Reference “PROMO-BD-SCHOOLS” as a line item on your order.
Burley says that every dollar spent helps students develop skills they can apply in their careers.
“By using BIG DAISHOWA tooling in school, students gain experience with the same tools they will use as future engineers and machinists.”
