Manufacturing is one of the country’s most important business sectors, and workers skilled in trades and technologies play a crucial role in Canada’s future economic stability. According to a report by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CMC), growth plans for more than 30 percent of Canadian companies are being impacted by current labour shortages. Investing in education and training programs is just one of several recommendations in the CMC’s Manufacturing our Future action plan.
“One of our goals at J/E is definitely to get youth involved and show them how great a career in machining and manufacturing can be,” said Derek Rozon, Plant Manager at J/E Bearing and Machine.
J/E Bearing & Machine and In-House Solutions are challenging other companies to support the future of manufacturing by investing in education in their communities. Making a donation to local schools will help educators encourage careers in skilled trades and provide the latest in technology and teaching aids.
