As part of the 20th birthday celebrations at Lexmark, the ink and printer manufacturer, this week announced an education initiative to promote science and maths achievement.

Lexmark plan to make nearly $1.7 million (£1 million) worth of investments that will advance science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the US.

Paul Rooke, president and chief executive officer (CEO) at Lexmark, said: "Not only are we committed to recognising educators and enriching the lives of students in the areas of STEM, we are focused on building the pipeline of future engineers and innovators that enable companies like Lexmark to succeed in today's competitive and fast-moving technology marketplace."

Furthermore, the ink and printer maker informed local community leaders that it plans to contribute up to $1 million to the University of Kentucky to support STEM efforts in the Commonwealth.

Paul Rooke became the CEO at Lexmark in October last year when he replaced Paul Curlander, who, when he retires from the company's board next month, will leave Rooke leading it into its third decade of business.
