Students from Frederick Douglass High School will be touring the Big Ass Solutions facility in Lexington, Kentucky as part of a Manufacturing Month project. Following the tour, Big Ass Solutions employees will conduct an industry briefing and participate in a Q&A session. The project also entails students completing pre- and post-tour interviews to discover their understanding of manufacturing careers. It culminates with the production of a video to promote the image of modern manufacturing and introduce potential career opportunities for the students. The project is made possible by JAG (Jobs for America's Graduates), Adecco's YES! (Youth Employment Solutions) Program, and MakerMinded (powered by LIFT).

About Big Ass Solutions
Our provocative name originated with the massive overhead fans we perfected to bring comfort and energy savings to industrial buildings. Today, though, Big Ass Solutions is much more than industrial—and much more than Big Ass Fans. Big Ass means quality, form and function to solve problems in the built environment. So what the heck does that mean? It’s having a veritable herd of engineers on staff and the world’s only R&D facility (which is LEED® Gold, no less) dedicated to testing air movement on a grand scale. It’s speaking to our customers directly to understand and solve their problems. But mostly it’s an insatiable drive to improve, engineer, design, test, re-engineer, re-design and re-test until we get it just right. And then start over again. It’s applying our Big Ass approach to other problems, and inventing or reinventing solutions. We don’t do things halfway. We go Big Ass. And that’s precisely why there’s No Equal™.
