Anderson carries on Forney family traditionSeptember 19, 2018
FORT COLLINS — Steven G. Anderson represents the third generation of leadership at Fort Collins-based Forney Industries, an 86-year-old manufacturer and distributor of metalworking and welding products. But while honoring the past, he actively works to build the future.As a member of the Front Range Community College board of directors, Anderson dedicates his time and company resources to help train welding professionals. “I really am very passionate about this,” Anderson said. “Blue-collar work-ers don’t have the same financial ability to go to a four-year college, and we need those skills in the workforce.”FRCC offers a two-year associate’s degree in welding technology, and when that program started growing, it reached out to Anderson, who was eager to help by offering scholarships.
