March 8, 2011 - PRLog -- (Palm City, Florida) – In a desire to give back to its community and share experiences with the younger generation, Shurhold Industries recently sponsored a field trip for the first grade class of The Pine School in Stuart, Fla.  Shurhold, a leading manufacturer of professional-grade automotive cleaning products and tools, hosted 35 students for two hours to learn about four major parts of the company's operation.

"It's very important for children to understand and experience the world around them," explained Shurhold president Barry Berhoff. "We're very proud that Shurhold is part of making that happen. We had a great time teaching the kids about our business and I know they enjoyed it just as much as we did."

Berhoff said the students had a chance to create a magazine ad to understand marketing and advertising practices. They also learned about teamwork on a production line creating brushes.

For warehouse education, students had a pallet stacking race and used computers and machines to organize products and parts.  To learn about shipping, each child operated a wireless handheld scanner to pick, pack, weigh and ship a sales order.

“I commend the Shurhold organization for caring enough about the community to commit a morning to my daughter and her first grade classmates," said Jamie Munson, who accompanied his daughter, Olivia, as a parent chaperone for the field trip. "We both learned a lot and had so much fun!  I was quite impressed with the operational efficiency and attention to detail demonstrated by the Shurhold team.”
