Owens Receives Donation from Toledo Technologies

  Toledo Technologies in Perrysburg has donated $5,000 to Owens Community College for the Skilled Trades Electrical programs, offering students further access to high-tech electrical training equipment at the College's Center for Development and Training (CDT).

  Toledo Technologies controller Mark Mueller presented the donation to Owens President Daniel H. Brown.

  The new training equipment will be used to teach the fundamentals of electrical print reading, applications, troubleshooting and motor controls. These courses at CDT provide the basis for advanced training in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and electronics training. Toledo Technologies also has donated computer equipment that will be used in CDT's electronics and PLC labs.

  "This donation will assist our efforts to continually update and retrofit our labs and equipment to reflect the changing technology used in local industry," said Bill Deffenbaugh, Executive Director of Economic and Workforce Development at CDT.

  Toledo Technologies is North America's largest supplier of rocker arms and cam followers for General Motors, Ford and Daimler-Chrysler. In the Toledo area, the company is composed of three divisions: Toledo Stamping Division, the Precision Components Division and the Product Development Division.
