Matamoros Plant 1 Employees Craft Student Desks by Using Scrap Wood

February 2012

A team of ten Inteva employees from Matamoros Operations Plant 1 made a creative difference by using scrap wood pieces to craft desks and chairs for a local fourth grade class.

The team gathered scrap wood from crates in the door module production area and designed, constructed and painted 20 desks and chairs. Each chair matches and fits neatly next to each desk, giving the teacher and students the space needed for all classroom activities.

Rather than using their budget on desks and chairs, Guadalupe Victoria School, was able to purchase other necessities for these local students.
