Nexen New Machine Challenge
Sept 15, 2014
[editor's update May, 2015 - The Nexen Challenge was completed successfully, raising over $75,000 for new machinery and improvements in the Cardinal Manufacturing Program. Thank you to all who have and are participating on all levels. We continue to ask for your financial support in any amount, large or small, to fund continuing improvements to this groundbreaking program.]
The Nexen Group of Webster, Wisconsin, and its owner, Hutch Schilling and VP of Human Resources, Dan Conroy, have been significant supporters of Cardinal Manufacturing over the years. They have donated, provided guidance and letters of support for the program, and been customers of the operation, as well.
During the 2014-15 academic year, the Nexen Group corporation and Dan Conroy, individually, have offered a $37,500 donation toward the cost of a CNC Machine for Cardinal Manfuacturing—half its anticipated price tag—if Cardinal Manufacturing can raise the rest of the funds needed for the purchase.
Want to help Cardinal Manufacturing reach this goal? Please send donations to:
