Top Shop Challenge: Does your shop help out any local schools? Share some of the things you do to help fuel the next generation.

A group of students from the local high school recently visited our office for a comprehensive tour of our facilities and to gain insight into the various services provided by Komro Sales and Service. During their visit, they had the opportunity to observe our mechanics, welders, and fabricators in action in the shop. In the near future, we will be visiting the high school to engage with seniors enrolled in small engine and welding classes. Our aim is to discuss potential job prospects and opportunities available to them post-graduation.
