MINNEAPOLIS, MN – June 8, 2015 – The Nexstar Legacy Foundation (the foundation) today announced a partnership with Goodman Manufacturing, a member of the Daikin Group, that will address the shortage of technicians for the plumbing, HVAC and electrical industry.

Goodman’s Director of Strategic Alliances, Mike Henson, presented the foundation a check in the amount of $25,000 that will support and help grow the foundation’s two programs, Explore the Trades and Troops to Trades, both of which address the growing shortage of technicians by providing career information, scholarships and connections to business across the U.S. and Canada. This was the second year that Goodman provided significant support to the foundation.

“The technician shortage isn’t just a problem for the service companies, it also affects manufacturing. Manufacturers need to recognize that fewer technicians mean service companies can’t meet the needs of their customers, which will have a negative impact on all of our businesses. We all need to be concerned about this shortage,” stated Henson.

 A BIG THANK YOU to Goodman for their ongoing support!
