ITC Manufacturing: Leaders in Wire Mesh Decking

ITC Welcomes Entrepreneurial Summer Camp Students

This summer, ITC was proud to participate in an Entrepreneurial Summer Camp for kids in the local Phoenix area that allowed students to spend the day learning about the company and its products.  Attendees were able to participate in a variety of activities including tours of the factory and different departments, as well as a hosted lunch and a Q/A with founder, owner and chairman of the board Johnnie Caldwell.

Departments in the tour included shipping/receiving, sales, custom projects, operations and more.  ITC made the event fun and included a scavenger hunt and introduced students to concepts such as manufacturing, accounting and how ITC has grown from a powder coating company to the national manufacturer of wire mesh and fencing it is today.  Students had a change to meet key members of the ITC executive staff and get important insights that will help them grow their entrepreneurial spirit.

Happy Juneteenth!

Today, millions of Americans across the country will come together to celebrate Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th has been celebrated in the United States as the African American Emancipation Day (or Freedom Day).

“As a Nation, we vow to never forget the millions of African-Americans who suffered the evils of slavery,” President Donald Trump said in a statement Tuesday recognizing the holiday. “Together, we honor the unbreakable spirit and countless contributions of generations of African Americans to the story of American greatness. Today we recommit ourselves to defending the self-evident truth, boldly declared by our Founding Fathers, that all people are created equal.”

At ITC, we are proud to recognize this monumental day in both our Columbus and Phoenix plants and will continue to defend our nation’s true fundamental values.
