Cotterman® has always been a community oriented company. We are the leader in Rolling Metal Ladders, but it doesn’t stop there. We maintain a good relationship within our communities. Friday, October 12th, we were visited by a group of high school seniors who may have interest in entering into the manufacturing workforce in the future. Our presenters, Rob Stimpson, Karen Smith and Nick Auquier had the pleasure of showing these young men and women around our Croswell, Michigan facility. They were shown almost the entire manufacturing process from the first weld, to powder coating, to being shipped out the door! We had a great time with some very bright students. 

Thank you to our presenters for showing the students around and giving them a glance into the world of efficiently manufacturing world-class ladders and safety products!
