Polyvance has been promoting plastic repair in vocational-technical schools for the past several years. Over the years, plastic repair has grown in schools, and more instructors are realizing the importance of nitrogen plastic welding. In 2018, nitrogen plastic welding became a scored part of the SkillsUSA national competition. Kurt Lammon, president of Polyvance, took twenty 6085 nitrogen welders to the national competition for the competitors to use. Polyvance believes SkillsUSA is a great way for students to learn skills that will secure them steady, in-demand jobs.
The SkillsUSA National Conference takes place in Louisville, Kentucky, June 24-28, this year. The state winners from around the country will compete to earn a national title in their category. This will be the ultimate test for Luis’s skills. At the competition, Luis will have the incredible opportunity to showcase his skills on a national stage and gain exposure among industry leaders. The price for each student to attend the SkillsUSA National Conference can be costly. A student must factor in travel expenses, lodging, meals, and entertainment into their budget. Polyvance is proud to make this donation to help reduce the cost of Luis’s trip. Polyvance encourages others in the industry to support SkillsUSA and the growth of trade skills in students.
