Peckham Partners with Local Schools

May 12, 2022 | Community, Employees, Events, New York, News, Plant Information, Vermont

Peckham Industries has recently partnered with several local schools in order to expose local students to available career opportunities and to teach them more about the construction industry. The Dailey Precast team organized several tours with Southwest Tech’s Building Trades program throughout the month of April. Junior and senior high school students from Bennington County, VT were able to come on-site and participate in guided tours from members of Dailey Precast’s operations, production, quality control, and automotive teams. The Peckham Materials team hosted students from Red Hook Highschool at our Pleasant Valley facility earlier this month.  These students toured the quarry, crushing plant, HMA plant, witnessed a blast, and saw a demonstration in the quality control lab. Students also watched a demonstration of how Peckham Industries utilizes drone technology at each of our plants and facilities. Lastly, in celebration of Earth Day,  Peckham visited  Dover Middle School to discuss the mining industry, the Wingdale quarry, and recycling efforts throughout all of Peckham Industries.  Partnering with local schools is mutually beneficial for the students and the industry and is something Peckham Industries is interested in continuing companywide. Students are able to learn about potential employment opportunities and the construction field, while the Peckham team and the industry are able to continue growing.  If your school is interested in learning more about our facilities or the construction industry, contact
