Ford Motor Co. shows support for Kettering Robotics Center

Ford Motor Co. donated $50,000 to Kettering University.

Ford Motor Company is again stepping up and showing its support for Kettering University.

The company donated $50,000 to help fund the first Robotics Community Center.

The state-of-the-art facility is in need of tools and equipment for the center's machine shop.

"This was a great opportunity to combine both of those with this first robotics community center located on campus in a one of a kind in the nation to get younger students engaged and still support Kettering University as well," said Raj Nair, Vice President of Ford Global Product.

The Robotics Community Center is slated to open late September.

Kettering University says Ford's contribution today will help make it possible for students to have a range of opportunities.
