Enerquip Supports Athens School’s Tech-Ed Program with Ventilation System Upgrade

On behalf of Enerquip, Design Engineering Manager Cameron Diedrich (far right) recently presented Athens High School tech-ed Teacher Shawn Steinke (second from right), with a $4,000 donation to update the tech-ed shop’s ventilation system, providing enhanced learning experience for students.


Enerquip Thermal Solutions, a leading provider of premium sanitary and industrial process equipment, has proudly donated $4,000 to the Athens Public Schools tech-ed program. The contribution will be used to upgrade the tech-ed shop’s ventilation system, which was previously inadequate for the school’s CNC plasma machine purchased last year. With the help of Enerquip’s donation, the plasma machine will be fully operational for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year, providing students with a more practical and enhanced learning experience.

A CNC plasma machine is a computer-controlled cutting tool that utilizes ionized compressed air to create a beam that can reach temperatures of up to 30,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The result is a precise cut through materials, enabling students to develop practical skills and knowledge.

Shawn Steinke, Athens High School Tech-Ed Teacher, expressed profound gratitude for the donation, stating that it would have a significant impact on the students and teachers in the program. “We’re excited to see the ventilation system upgrade come to fruition so we can start using our equipment to its full potential,” Steinke said. “We are extremely thankful to Enerquip for their amazing support.”

Enerquip is committed to creating a brighter future for students, teachers, and the community by supporting educational initiatives that provide practical skills and knowledge to the next generation. Jeannie Deml, President & CEO of Enerquip, stated, “We’re thrilled to give back to our local schools, which are instrumental in educating and training our future employees and leaders. We appreciate the dedicated teachers and administration that provide practical training opportunities for our youth.”
