Our Mission

To keep manufacturing in America vital, the industry needs a workforce that is increasing in numbers and prepared to keep pace with advances in technology. Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs has responded to the call with programs designed to fill the pipeline of skilled workers.

Manufacturing camps reach students at a young enough age when their career choices can be influenced, and their education can include the foundational training necessary to excel. NBT scholarships assist and support those post-secondary students who have already discovered manufacturing and want to pursue the advanced training needed for industry careers. From its beginning through today, the NBT Foundation has maintained a focus on developing the next generation of manufacturers.
