Grote Industries donates $25,000 to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation
Madison, IN, October 31, 2014: Reflecting its continuing support of the Heavy Duty trucking industry, Grote has made a donation of $25,000 to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation’s scholarship fund to be used to train new aftermarket personnel. The automotive and HD industries are currently experiencing a shortage of candidates in a wide range of categories—especially technicians.
Since 1986, the University of the Aftermarket Foundation is one of several organizations that have funded millions of dollars in scholarships, grants, research, and ongoing educational programs to help develop a strong, knowledgeable aftermarket workforce. The foundation encourages industry support, including donations for the purpose of honoring or memorializing individuals or otherwise recognizing special events, helping ensure the continued availability of training and education that strengthen the industry. Scholarship awards go to candidates at the high school level all the way up to Ph.D. candidates. 131 scholarships from the University of the Aftermarket were awarded in 2014.
One of the biggest concerns on the road today is the danger caused by distracted driving. With the frequency of rear-end collisions rising nationally as a result, Grote is proud to announce a groundbreaking product to help keep our roads safe: the Auxiliary Strobe & Stop Lamp.
