Trace-A-Matic believes in servitude and giving back to our communities. As God’s word tells us in 1 Peter 4:10 – Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. Employees are encouraged to give back to the community through their church or charity of choice. For those employees who have taken the extra initiative to serve a not-for-profit organization as a leader or help to organize volunteering activities, the company willingly steps in to help monetarily.
Trace-A-Matic is a founding corporate member and a key architect of the Dual Enrollment Program (DEP) with Waukesha County Technical College. The DEP allows high school seniors to jump-start their careers in highly sought-after manufacturing roles. The program facilitates the completion of high school diplomas, college credits earning, and industry-recognized certifications. The academy features CNC machining, tool and die making, welding fabrication, robotics, printing, and publishing programs.
Trace-A-Matic and its employees sponsor children in poverty through Compassion International. Poverty robs children of their health, education, and hope for the future. Supporting a child engages our employees through correspondence and empowers the child’s local church to walk alongside them — releasing them from poverty in Jesus’ name.
Trace-A-Matic is the proud title sponsor of Project Echelon and their outstanding work with our veterans. The devastating reality is that 22 veterans take their lives each day. This non-profit organization is health advocacy that seeks to help veterans and their families regroup, recover, and re-engage through physical activity and self-discovery.
Trace-A-Matic supports BEAST Robotics, the Elmbrook School District’s FIRST Robotics team. High school-age participants collaborate with real-world professionals to concept, design, and build a functional robot to complete a defined activity. The process exposes young people to cross-function and interdisciplinary problem solving and teaches how to collaborate and compete with a common goal.
Trace-A-Matic supports the Waukesha School District’s FIRST Robotics team. CORE stands for the Community of Robotics Engineers, which comprises a community of students, volunteer teachers, engineers, and parents interested in learning and promoting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). The team inspires self-confidence, leadership, and life skills while working side by side to solve engineering problems.
