IWF Donates to MiLL Training Center

The $12,500 contribution promotes a stronger workforce in Colorado.

In its first donation of the year to an industry organization, the International Woodworking Fair has announced a $12,500 contribution to the Manufacturing Industry Learning Lab (MiLL) in Colorado Springs, CO.  

The unrestricted donation is for the advancement of its mission to promote a stronger trade workforce in Colorado, IWF officials said. MiLL exists to expand opportunities for learners and offer students trade career paths in cabinet manufacturing, construction technology and welding technology.

“IWF has long championed education, innovation and talent development as key forces powering the wood products industry’s future,” said Andreas Muehlbauer, Stiles Machinery Executive Vice President and IWF 2022 Show Chair. It is part of its overall efforts, including the IWF Education Conference, the IWF Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award and the IWF Design Emphasis Student Furniture Design competition.

“Our new partnership with the Manufacturing Industry Learning Lab affirms those values in a tangible commitment to help nurture the manufacturing talent our industry depends upon,” Muehlbauer added.

The $12,500 IWF contribution was unanimously approved by the IWF 2022 Management Committee members who are representatives of the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA) and Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA), the owners of the IWF show.
