Greenlee Donates Tools to Illinois' First Wind Turbine Technology Center

Greenlee, a Textron Inc. company, entered into a partnership recently with Highland Community College in Freeport, Illinois, with a donation of numerous hand tools, test and measurement equipment, storage boxes and work benches worth over $30,000 for the college's brand new Wind Turbine Technology Center.

"This partnership will provide Greenlee with the opportunity to work with, supply to, and foster the growing alternative energy industry in the United States, said Ajay Chandrasekhar, a member of the Greenlee Strategy team. This venture will directly contribute to developing a greener and stronger energy industry in northern Illinois."

HCC's new 5,500 square-foot facility will be the first such facility in Illinois and is one of only four higher education institutions across the United States to design a specific course for Wind Energy Technicians.
