Forest City Gear is proud to announce that Director of Operations Jared Lyford has been elected to the Rock River Valley Tooling & Machining Association (RRVTMA) Board of Directors.
“It is an honor for me to join the Rock River Valley Tooling and Machining Association as member of the Board of Directors,” says Lyford. “I am passionate about the apprenticeship program, as I credit the foundation of my career to the experience, education, and credentials it provides.”
As the local chapter of the National Tooling and Machining Association, RRVTMA promotes setting world-class standards in machining and tooling solutions in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Jared for several years, and knew he would add a lot of value to our organization,” says Casey Schwebke, President of RRVTMA. “I am excited for the fresh ideas and energy he brings to our organization.”
“It is no secret that the labor market needs ambitious and skilled people,” says Lyford. “As these people get involved with our industries, they need to have a robust place to get training and begin to build their respective networks locally. I look forward to collaborating with the team in place at the RRVTMA and working towards advancing the cause and effectiveness of an already great program.”
