Kern was among several industry guest speakers and told students that it’s an ideal time to start a career in manufacturing. “For many years, jobs were moving out of the U.S. to offshore places like China, and India,” Kern explained. “That trend has slowed down, and in some cases we are seeing ‘on-shoring’ where some of those jobs that were lost are coming back to the U.S.”
“WELD has been on a steady growth path,” said Kern. “We have doubled our business in three years and we aren’t planning on slowing down any time soon. With all of this activity and growth, we have career opportunities available at many levels of our company which include: manufacturing, design, engineering, sales and marketing. We are looking to you for fresh ideas and innovations to further the WELD product line.”
Kern concluded his speech by saying, “The performance aftermarket industry is a smart choice and we would love to see you join it!” WELD served as the presenting sponsor of the KC World of Wheels and an exhibitor during the event held Feb. 12-14 at Bartle Hall at the Kansas City Convention Center.
