WD-40 Company Partners With UTI To Support Students And Technical Education

Students will have opportunity to work with WD-40 brand products in the classroom.

WD-40 Company and Universal Technical Institute (UTI) have entered into a three-year agreement to support UTI students and technical education by supplying UTI campuses with WD-40 Company’s iconic multi-purpose lubricant and newest line of professional grade specialty maintenance products under the WD-40 Specialist line.

Through the partnership, UTI students will receive WD-40 Specialist product samples at orientation and will also have the opportunity to work with the products in the classroom.

“We’re committed to giving the next generation of mechanics and technicians the tools they need to get the job done,” said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing at WD-40 Company. “One of our values as a company is to make it better than it is today, so we’re proud to partner with an established organization like Universal Technical Institute that trains mechanics and technicians so they can get top jobs in the industry.”

WD-40 Company has been a supporter of UTI for more than 10 years but will now also be providing additional specialty products and have signage throughout campuses nationwide. Representatives from both companies were also recently featured together on an episode of PowerNation TV’s “Xtreme Off-Road.”

“WD-40 Company has made an investment in our students and are supporters of the value of technical education,” said Terry Emig, director of business alliances for UTI. “Having a household name like WD-40 Company support UTI through generous product donations and its commitment to quality technical education is an invaluable endorsement of our campuses and students.”
