“This lab is very exciting for us,” said Jon DeSouza, president and CEO of Harting Americas and North Central College alumnus, “as it represents things that are very important to the company. The first is Harting’s investment to education and shaping the minds of young engineers. In addition, it was important to select a college nearby our Elgin, Ill., North American headquarters so that we support our local community.”
Philip Harting, chairman of the Harting board, called the ceremony a “milestone” and expressed his enthusiasm for furthering the partnership and connecting with students who may be “possible employees for our future.”
Troy D. Hammond, president of North Central College, noted the company’s global success and its ability to be responsive to the changing needs of its customers. “We intend to support Harting’s success by generating talented graduates,” he said. “We’re proud to partner with Harting to ensure we both have a brilliant future.”
The Harting Electronics Lab is located in the newly named Wentz Science Center in room 111.
