Ergodyne donates gloves to collision students

March 3, 2011

March 3, 2011 — Ergodyne, a workplace product development company, recently donated 600 pairs of ProFlex model gloves to the Collision Repair Education Foundation, which will distribute them to collision repair students across the country.

The $15,000 in-kind donation makes Ergodyne part of the foundation’s Industry Leadership Circle of high donors.

“We’re excited to be part of the education of tomorrow’s automotive technicians,” said Tom Votel, the company’s CEO and president. “Proper gloves are critical to a safe and productive career.”

Scott Krueger, executive director of the Collision Repair Education Foundation, said the donation was well timed.

“School instructors have had their collision department’s budgets so severely reduced that even the basics such as student safety equipment aren’t able to be purchased,” he said. “Through Ergodyne’s glove donation, collision students will be able to work safely within the classroom when learning how to correctly repair collision damaged vehicles.”
