Industry: Donate Used Equipment to KTEC
Used Industrial Equipment can be Utilized
A prime example of the continued benefit of used industrial equipment shows in many of the donations contributed to the K-Tec Charter School located on Lancaster Road on the Rathdrum Prairie. Pictured above, Gordon Groat, CEO and President of the Port of Alberta, Edmonton, discusses this matter with Alan Golub who donated all of the machinery from his former company when he closed his doors to business.
Several other pieces of heavy duty machinery have been donated to the K-Tech school by various entities including North Idaho College. As with this heavy-duty metal bender, pictured below, which had no built-in safety features like more modern versions, it’s utility benefit was found in its demolition by young industry-pointed future employees who are dismantling the machine to advance their understandings of how and why things work the way they do and what can be improved to make such equipment safer.
How to make an equipment donation
You can make an equipment donation by contacting Tim Fortune, Director, at the KTEC located at 6838 W. Lancaster Road just outside of Rathdrum on the Rathdrum Prairie. Only a couple of years old, many people are not aware the school is there. Here’s how you get there.
