Manufacturer of water heating and storage equipment announces $50,000 donation to extend its partnership with Pennsylvania agency committed to sustainable energy and skilled trades training

Bradford White Corporation, an industry-leading manufacturer of water heaters, boilers and storage tanks, announced today a $50,000 grant through its Industry Forward® initiative to help Pennsylvania’s Energy Coordinating Agency (ECA) launch a pilot internship program for youth and emerging workers from Philadelphia’s disadvantaged communities.

The grant will support a 60-hour internship program for up to 30 participants in ECA’s signature heat pump water heater installation and maintenance training course in 2024.

“Bradford White and ECA share a mission to showcase the rewarding career opportunities that are available in the skilled trades and to support the foundation of education and training necessary to maintain a thriving workforce,” said Rebecca Owens, senior manager of communications for Bradford White. “We’re proud to extend our partnership with ECA so they can continue to provide valuable learning opportunities for youth and adults throughout the Philadelphia area.”

Industry Forward® is Bradford White’s signature, developed to help advance workforce development and increase public awareness of career opportunities in the plumbing and HVAC industries.

ECA’s 200-hour heat pump training program consists of classroom instruction, lab exercises and career development. Interns supported by Bradford White’s Industry Forward® grant will supplement the training program with on-the-job installation experience supervised by a professional HVACR technician.

“Bradford White is providing critical support for our mission through their Industry Forward® program,” said Steve Luxton, executive director and CEO of ECA. “With their continuing partnership, our trainees will have more opportunities to develop the self-confidence and leadership skills that come from jobsite experience. Thanks to Bradford White, we’re able to provide innovative workforce development education for young people in Philadelphia while also ensuring our community has reliable energy services.”

Bradford White partners with nonprofit organizations and technical schools to educate individuals and families on the importance of the skilled trades and the role that industry professionals provide in the health, safety, sanitation, and infrastructure of their communities through strategic grant funding that supports workforce development training and education programs and industry career opportunities, events, and partnerships.

ECA leads the design and implementation of high-quality energy conservation initiatives to reduce household energy costs and stabilize low-income families in their homes and communities. ECA’s Heat Pump and Heat Pump Water Heater Training Lab, supported by Bradford White and other partners, prepares HVACR technicians from historically marginalized communities for sustainable careers, while facilitating the adoption of heat pumps and heat pump water heaters and advancing the clean energy transition.

An industry-leading manufacturer of water heating and storage equipment gives $8,000 to further national nonprofit’s mission and raise awareness of skilled trades career opportunities

Bradford White Corporation, an industry-leading manufacturer of water heaters, boilers and storage tanks, announces a new partnership with Explore The Trades that aims to bridge the technical talent gap in the service trades and advance positive public awareness of the plumbing and HVAC industry.

Explore The Trades, a nonprofit organization founded in 2005, is bridging the technical talent gap to the skilled trades of plumbing, heating, cooling, and electrical by raising awareness of the skilled trades, serving an integral role in lessening the skilled labor gap and acting as a partner to both education and industry with the goal of creating the next generation of technicians.

Through Industry Forward®, its signature charitable giving program developed to help advance the industry and raise awareness of career opportunities, Bradford White Corporation is donating $8,000 to Explore The Trades. The contribution supports the creation of 1,000 poster kits showcasing careers in the skilled trades that will be distributed to educators and counselors across North America.

“Over the past generation, awareness of the skilled trades has nearly become extinct,” said Kate Cinnamo, executive director at Explore The Trades. “Yet many students, parents and educators lack access to information about the career opportunities in the service trades, manufacturing and distribution that are vital to our communities. We’re proud to partner with Bradford White to close that information gap. Their support enables us to serve as the conduit between industry and education so we can engage the audiences who are vital to the growth of the trades.”

Bradford White partners with nonprofit organizations and technical schools to educate individuals and families on the importance of the skilled trades and the role that industry professionals provide in the health, safety, sanitation, and infrastructure of their communities through strategic grant funding that supports workforce development training and education programs and industry career opportunities, events, and partnerships.

“We are thrilled to partner with Explore The Trades and expand our reach by connecting with students, parents and educators in an exciting new way,” said Rebecca Owens, senior communications manager for Bradford White. “As more teens and young adults consider the financial impact of attending a four-year college, we will continue to advocate for the option of a stable career in an essential industry. Joining with Explore The Trades to pursue our shared mission helps us reach more individuals that may be interested in the plumbing and HVAC fields than ever before.”
