The Next Generation of Business Leaders

L&S Machine Company

L&S Machine Company (L&S) is a precision machine shop doing business both nationally and internationally in the nuclear, naval, and energy generation markets.

Scott Dietz, Manager of Workforce Initiatives at Catalyst Connection, contacted L&S President, Rob DiNardi, about taking part in the Adventures in Technology (AIT) program. With more than 10 years of success, AIT is an industry-focused business, education and community partnership designed to increase the visibility of regional career opportunities in southwestern Pennsylvania.

L&S was paired with students from nearby Eastern Westmoreland Career and Technology Center. The students were charged with researching barcoding systems for use in the manufacturing facility. The company was very pleased with the end results reported by the students and felt the recommendations would be valuable to the organization and portions of them have since been implemented by the company.
