Delta Power Equipment Corp. provided 18 special-run Unisaw cabinet saws and nine dust collection units to the June 21-23 cabinetmaking competition at the SkillsUSA National Conference and Contest in Kansas City, Mo. This is the highest level of support Delta has provided to SkillsUSA, according to the company.
The 18 Unisaws were built at Delta’s new manufacturing facility in Anderson, S.C. Sixty-eight SkillsUSA students are competing in the cabinetmaking competition in two age groups (secondary and post-secondary) and the winner of the post-secondary competition will compete in the WorldSkills Cabinetmaking Qualifying Trial at the AWFS fair in July. Delta will be providing the Unisaw cabinet saw for this competition as well.
“We are pleased to provide the SkillsUSA national cabinetmaking competition with our machinery and equipment,” Delta president and CEO Bryan Whiffen said in a statement. “These young men and women are serious about entering the cabinetmaking industry and we naturally want to encourage and support their interest in this industry in any way that we can.”
