New Scholarships from Lowbrow Customs To Promote USA Manufacturing
Lowbrow Customs, based in Brunswick, Ohio, has announced a scholarship program that is aimed at supporting USA manufacturing. Being located directly in the Midwest’s resurging Rust Belt may have provided some inspiration for the custom motorcycle parts brand.
“Part of our motivation is self-serving. We deal with manufacturers on a daily basis,” said Tyler Malinky, founder of Lowbrow Customs. “We are trying to help create the next generation of manufacturers so we can work with them!” Lowbrow is located just south of Cleveland, Ohio, where industrial buildings and factories are part of the normal backdrop. “We love developing motorcycle parts, and working with other people who have the same attention to detail that we do,” said Malinky, “So we decided to do something to help fill the demand for skilled workers.”
Lowbrow Customs donates two $2,500 scholarships per year to Cuyahoga Community College, also known as Tri-C. The scholarships are awarded by the Tri-C Foundation to students in financial need who are pursing workforce training. “I took both basic and advanced Solidworks 3-D CAD classes at Tri-C myself a couple years ago,” said Malinky when asked about Lowbrow’s decision to back the local college. “I started putting that knowledge to work after just the first few classes. It made a real impact in my life.”
