Channellock, Inc., will participate in the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC) in Louisville, Ky., June 24-28.

The event is described as the preeminent showcase of the future skilled trade workforce where career and technical education students compete in 103 different trade, technical and leadership fields.

“As a company built by skilled workers, we are passionate about career and technical education,” said Ryan DeArment, vice president of sales and marketing at Channellock, Inc. “To close the skills gap, we need to invest in students to inspire the future of skilled labor in America. We are excited to see what these students can do.”

As part of the NLSC events, Channellock, Inc., will exhibit during the SkillsUSA Techspo, the largest trade show for technical education in the nation. Channellock, Inc., will host games and giveaways for students to interact with its tools at the booth.

“NLSC is all about hands-on experience,” said DeArment. “We want to give students a chance to do the same with our tools on the trade show floor and give them the full Channellock experience. We will also debut our latest innovation, the SpeedGrip line of fast action tongue & groove pliers. We’ve found that the younger generations of American tradesmen are interested in the push-button style pliers and we are excited to show SkillsUSA students what Channellock has to offer.”

Channellock, Inc., will also announce the winner of Channellock Trade School Trade-Up. This competition, presented by Channellock, Inc., gives trade schools across America the chance to win a free supply of Channellock tools, a $5,000 cash prize and a classroom makeover.

“The NLSC is a great place for us to announce our winner of the 2019 Trade School Trade-Up competition,” said Jon DeArment, president and chief operating officer at Channellock, Inc. “This competition is all about improving the facilities and tools that students have access to during their trade school education. There’s no better place to celebrate the winner of this competition than at a SkillsUSA event.”

Channellock will also sponsor the first inning of the Louisville Bats minor league baseball game on June 26.
