Washburn Tech was one of the reasons we chose Topeka to build our plant. We have partnered with them to develop and deliver maintenance technician and team member training. They also have provided courses to various Microsoft applications for our associates. We see this as just the start of this partnership. We envision building upon this foundation to provide even better programs in the future. We are happy to have Washburn Tech as a partner in this journey.
