EFCO Metal Finishing is a proud member of the Milwaukee-area community, and it’s important to us not only to join other manufacturers in collaboration, but to support a variety of causes within the community. One of those partners is KAPCO, a local business that manufactures parts for a variety of different customers and industries, specializing in stamping, fabrication, welding and more. EFCO Finishing is their metal finishing resource partner, providing them a variety of different services, from vibratory finishing to grit blasting to degreasing.
KAPCO held its annual Kids2Kids Christmas toy drive this past Saturday at their facility in Grafton. Kids are encouraged to collect toys for those less fortunate, and every year, thousands are collected and distributed to those in need. The KAPCO office is transformed into a mini North Pole, with a huge toy train on display, and one room dedicated to everything Barbie! Other highlights include real reindeer, live music, cookie decorating, ice sculptures, and hay rides for the kids.
Terry Schultz, president of EFCO, makes it a point to attend this annual event with his children. “There is no better way to get in the Christmas spirit. And it is for a really great purpose, helping to brighten Christmas for local kids. The great part about KAPCO and Jim Kacmarcik is that they are both really successful, and give back so much to the community. He is really humble, and always thinking of ways he can help others. They are a great company, and we value them so much, and like to join them in the events they host whenever we can.” If you have never attended, mark your calendars for 2016. It is traditionally held the 2nd Saturday in December, with events at other locations as well.
