MacLean-Fogg Company to Sponsor 2017 Clean Snowmobile Challenge

MacLean-Fogg Company is excited to announce its sponsorship of the 2017 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC). This collegiate design competition challenges teams to reengineer an existing snowmobile to improve environmental performance. Modified snowmobiles then compete in a variety of events including emissions, noise, fuel economy / endurance, acceleration, handling, static display, cold start and design. 
MacLean-Fogg is the premier, worldwide supplier of value-added, engineered, and customer-focused solutions that leverage our material forming expertise in key product fields. Partnering with the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge allows MacLean-Fogg to interact with engineering leaders of tomorrow. 
Dave Lomasney, MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions (MFCS) President, stated, “Our involvement with the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge provides us with an opportunity to meet with top engineering students and introduce them to MacLean-Fogg.” Rob Whitney, Engineered Plastics Division President, said, “The SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge enables students to apply their talents and gain valuable skills in preparation for their careers at a company like ours.” 
Kyle Jackson, is a Tool Design Engineer for MacLean-Fogg’s Metform Division, that worked on the project as a student. He says, “During my time in the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge, I was able to take my knowledge beyond what is taught in just the classrooms. The competition also gives its participants experience in project and time management and helps increase teamwork skills, which better prepare them for a career after graduation.”
Jay Meldrum, Executive Director of the Keweenaw Research Center of Michigan Tech, commented, “Michigan Tech is honored to have MacLean-Fogg become the premier sponsor of the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge. MacLean-Fogg recognizes the value of competition-based engineering and the quality of students that this type of activity creates. Their sponsorship of the MacLean-Fogg Cup exemplifies this support and will provide a lasting impression on the students.”
