We visited TW Metals, one of our sponsors located in Carol Stream, Illinois. Several members and some alumn trekked it out during the heat to make a friendly visit. We made it out there with the Formula and Baja cars so we could show it off to our sponsors.
We’re mostly used to communicating with our sponsors over the phone or through emails, so it was great to meet them in person. We got a tour of their facilities, seeing first-hand where our materials come from. We also noticed that they hung our thank you gift on their wall, a sure sign they appreciate our efforts as much as we do theirs. It was a relaxing day and a great chance to step away from the lab.
We’re looking forward to more group events like this in the future.
