United Alloy To Expand in Harvard
United Alloy, Inc. (UAI) is coming to Harvard. UAI produces high quality welding and repair products. The company needs to hire at least 20 full-time and experienced AWS D1.1 MIG welders to support the new facility. UAI wants to hire local Harvard area welders now and will employ them at their Janesville WI headquartersuntil the new facility is built. UAI will ultimately employ 50 welders in Harvard. To help fulfill this need, the City of Harvard and UAI have partnered with McHenry County College to create a training program for persons who are seeking a career in welding with UAI. Graduates of the 8-week program who pass UAI test requirements will be hired by UAI. Financial assistance for the training may be available. The City will host an open house to provide details in August.
