Ruland Gives Back through FIRST

Ruland Manufacturing Co., Inc. is again proud to sponsor the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition by donating a variety of shaft collars, rigid couplings, and motion control couplings. For the first time Ruland will make parts available to the FIRST Choice program allowing teams to select a wider variety of products that will better suit their robot. The FIRST Robotics Competition gives high school students six weeks to design, program, and build a complex robot. The competition kicked off on Saturday January 5th, and culminates in St. Louis, MO with the FIRST Robotics Championship from April 24-27, 2013. Ruland believes strongly in education and is excited to help inspire a future generation of engineers.
