As part of a partnership with Universal Technical Institute (UTI), CRC Industries Inc. will supply all UTI locations with a variety of products from its chemical brands, including CRC, SmartWasher, Sta-Lube, K&W, and Weld-Aid. Additionally, CRC will provide product training materials and workshops to UTI students and instructors.
John Dodson, UTI vice president of business alliances, said, “We are extremely excited about the partnership between CRC Industries and UTI. The technicians we train are in high demand, and CRC’s partnership gives our students the opportunity to work with the tools they’ll use on the job, in the real world. We look forward to working with CRC to support UTI students as they train for good jobs and rewarding careers in the transportation industry.”
CRC offers a broad range of application-specific chemicals and service solutions for automotive, diesel, marine, welding and industrial maintenance and repair. According to Scott Grey, president of CRC Industries, “UTI is known for providing state-of-the-industry programs and education, and we are privileged to have CRC products used in their classrooms and labs and for facilities maintenance at their campuses. It’s extremely rewarding to see our products in the hands of students as they are developing their skills as the next generation of technicians.”
In January, CRC launched its first sponsored classrooms at UTI’s Exton, Pa., campus and its NASCAR Tech campus in Mooresville, N.C. CRC plans to roll out three additional sponsored classrooms this year. The rooms showcase some of the company’s best-known products including CRC Brakleen Brake Parts Cleaner, CRC Knock’er Loose Penetrating Solvent and the CRC SmartWasher Bioremediating Parts Washing System.
