The Lincoln Community High
School metals and electricity class toured Premier Fabrication Inc.
at Congerville. The plant is part of a large corporation that
locally produces steel parts for Case and Caterpillar. The company
started its life called the Farm Shop and now employs over 80
people. Students got to see the entire production facility and even
got to see the internal workings of the laser cutting machine.
Students visited with many employees of the plant about their jobs.
Welding is a very important skill that these employees use, but the
students need to be competent in other skills as well.
