Taking Pride In The Skills We Need

Midwest Tools is proud to be associated with those working in the skilled trades and we heartily support “Dirty Jobs” Mike Rowe’s “Discover Your Skills” campaign to close the skills gap and help the country reconnect with one of the most important segments of our work force. The video below is designed to complement this campaign to raise awareness of career opportunities and highlight the importance of training workers to fill critical jobs in the trades.

At Midwest Tool, of course, we also know that the kind of quality work that trade professionals take pride in often depends on quality tools. It’s been our job as a leading tool supplier for more than 70 years to make such quality tools. Each of our snips, for example, is hand made and hand tested for its exquisite precision. This is quality that starts with Midwest Tool as the only U.S. company that uses forged, not cast, steel — so your Midwest Tool snips lasts twice as long as any other. Add the ease and precision with which it cuts, and you have a smart tool made for a smart tradesperson — someone who can really appreciate the difference our tools make, just as we appreciate the difference such trades people make, and need to continue to make, in the growth and life of our country.

We encourage educators, students, trades people and other civic-minded citizens to get on board with Mike Rowe and other efforts to combat the skills deficit we face. We believe this is an effort we all should be making and talking about.

 

Midwest is proud to support skilled trade professionals who make a difference in ALL of our lives.
