Geneva Rock recently donated an ISX12 Cummins engine and radiator with an Allison Transmission to Salt Lake Community College. The donation was made to support the college’s efforts to train the next generation of diesel mechanics.
The diesel engine industry is in high demand, and the college’s Diesel Systems Technology Program teaches students to diagnose, repair, and maintain heavy-duty diesel engines. Careers in this field are critical to the growth of the construction industry.
Geneva Rock became aware of SLCC’s need for an engine through the Utah Diesel Tech Pathways (UDTP) program. The UDTP is part of a statewide initiative created by Talent Ready Utah that prepares students for careers in high demand industries by creating partnerships with various educational institutions and industry partners.
As a founding member of the Pathways initiative, Geneva Rock believes in the collaboration between industry partners, educational institutions, and government agencies to create career pathways for students and educate them about opportunities they may have not otherwise known about. The initiative provides students with the skills and knowledge required to excel in the industry and addresses the shortage of skilled workers in the field.
The ISX12 Cummins engine is a powerful and reliable engine that is widely used in heavy-duty applications, such as construction equipment, trucks, and buses. The engine is known for its durability, fuel efficiency, and low emissions, and is a great choice to use for training. The Allison Transmission that accompanies the engine is a top-of-the-line transmission widely used in heavy-duty applications.
By contributing to the Diesel Systems Technology Program at SLCC, Geneva Rock is supporting the next generation of diesel mechanics in Utah. Geneva Rock’s commitment to giving back to the community and supporting local educational institutions is a testament to the company’s values and dedication to Building a Better Community.
