For over thirty years, Acutec has thrived on the strength of our community, and our engagement is based on social and educational needs. We developed Acutec Community Engagement (ACE) to build on opportunities in Crawford County as well as fostering education to prepare employees of tomorrow.
The Meadville Mobile Market comes to Acutec to provide fresh produce to employees during the summer.
For building the strength of local education, we are fortunate to be partnered with organizations such as the Northwestern PA Chapter of the National Tooling and Machining Association, the Crawford County K-12 Career Education Alliance, and the Crawford County Career & Technical Center among several others. This provides us with the opportunity to reach out to students and give them essential skills. Through our partnerships and relationships we organize educational events and opportunities such as:
Internships: Acutec offers competitive and valuable internships for high school and college students to help apply concepts learned in the classroom to Acutec through meaningful projects and mentorship. To learn more, click here.
Manufacturing Day: Acutec offers this annual event to highlight the importance of manufacturing to the economy and to showcase the job opportunities within this industry to local youth and demonstrate how our work contributes to the aerospace industry on an international level.
Acutec Tours: Acutec offers tours for all ages, of any educational level, and we can help pay for transportation! You can come learn about Acutec's role in aerospace manufacturing by offering a unique field trip for your students or organization. Schedule your tour with us today!
... and many more!
