NASHUA, NH-- Extech Instruments , makers of handheld test and measurement tools, recently donated more than $40,000 worth of handheld test equipment to vocational, technical and science programs in four Eastern Massachusets high schools.

“Tradespeople help keep our world operating one electrical circuit, one HVAC duct, one circuit board, one industrial motor at at a time,” says Arpineh Mullaney, Extech vice president. “Extech is committed to the fantastic technical training programs available to launch young men and women in high school into in-demand careers.

“Looking ahead, as we see macro trends such as the baby boomer retirement wave, our nation faces an imminent shortage of qualified technicians,” he continues. “We need to continually encourage and support our youth to explore satisfying careers in the technical trades.”

Test equipment was donated for use in the following programs: electrical, electronics, HVAC, auto body, automotive technology, plant/facilities management, carpentry, robotics and science and lab programs.

Schools receiving donations included Waltham High School in Waltham, MA, Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School in Framingham, MA, Ashland High School in Ashland, MA, and Diman Regional Vocational High School in Fall River, MA.
