( The Kapro plant located in Kibbutz Kadarim in northern Israel will receive the Social Volunteering and Involvement Award from the Kibbutz Industry Association. The award celebrates the contribution of plant employees in the rehabilitation of the Tzalmon river, treatment of youth at risk, helping families in the city of Karmiel and supporting a club run by local Ethiopian Jews. The award will be given at the annual conference of the Kibbutz Industries Association, on December 16, which will be attended by hundreds of plant managers, heads of economic administrations and kibbutz secretaries.

According to Hagit Raz, Director of Training and Human Resources at the Kibbutz Industries Association, in recent years factory workers have joined a variety of environmental and social activities in the Lower Galilee. Most notably: the factory established “Patch Patrol,” in collaboration with the Welfare Department in Karmiel, whereby Kapro employees, both Jews and Arabs, who live in towns and villages nearby, help older residents in need of home repairs.


For 25 years, Kapro has been making the finest quality spirit levels, laser levels, and layout tools, marking and measuring tools. It maintains corporate presence in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, and in Wujiang District, Suzhou, China.

The plant takes part in a start-up program for at-risk youth intended to keep them from dropping out of school and directing them to advanced technological study tracks to be eventually integrated in industry. The boys come to work at Kapro once a week from the Ort high school in Tiberias, and are integrated in the various production departments, accompanied by department heads and employees. They are paid for their work.

The annual conference of the Kibbutz Industries Association will address strategic changes in the kibbutzim and kibbutz industry, technological innovation and entry into new growth and investment.
