Generac has been a proud partner of GPS Education Partners since its inception. The shared partnership is transforming the lives of students, whose days are divided between classroom learning and work-based training. This partnership gives Generac the opportunity to teach and mentor GPS students, and put them on a career path that is suitable for them. We help develop their skills, and have hired a number of the students after they graduate to enhance our working environment. – Generac Regional Human Resource Manager David Karst


There is no denying that this partnership is positively impacting Green Bay students, schools and KI’s business… A business partnership with GPS not only benefits students but provides an avenue to recruit and retain skilled technical employees. Currently the manufacturing industry accounts for 23% of all jobs in Northeast Wisconsin and is the single largest industry sector. The unemployment rate in Northeast Wisconsin is 3.4% and manufacturers are in need of employees. KI understands the importance of exposing young people to manufacturing as the need will only increase as retirements occur over the next 5-7 years. – KI CEO Dick Resch
