Hagan Business Machines of Meadville, Inc. Scholarship
Hagan Business Machines is proud to be locally owned and operated and we try to maintain our commitment to the community by supporting nonprofit organizations, charities and civil groups as well as local small businesses. In 1997 Hagan Business Machines of Meadville, Inc. partnered with the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) to start a new scholarship fund. This fund was created to raise much-needed monies for training in the tooling and machining industry. It is intended to raise awareness of the career opportunities at local industries and encourage students to pursue long-term careers in our area. Hagan Business Machines strives to support local business and talent and help keep resources in our area instead of some distant corporate headquarters. Local businesses create good jobs, and they boost the local tax base, which in turn improves schools, parks and the quality of life in town.
