Terra, Materion partner in skilled trades program

Electricity/PLC Instructor Nicholas Elchert (right), helps J. Kirby Martin, Tiffin; Lee Snyder, Fostoria; and Nick Eschenbrenner, Genoa, establish communications between an operator interface terminal and a programmable controller in his graphical interface class.Officials at Materion Elmore have enlisted the assistance of Terra State Community College to ensure that an adequate and constant supply of skilled trades people is available to them.
“The ability to find and attract fully qualified trades people has been increasingly difficult,” Randall Drummond, plant manager, said in a statement. “This fact, along with the additional facts that less people are going into the trades with multiple skills and our current trades’ workforce is aging, led us to the realization that we needed to develop a long term flexible plan to attract and develop trades people internally at Elmore in addition to our normal recruiting efforts.”
Materion has developed the Skilled Trades Entry Program. It consists of a three-tier approach to allow people of various mechanical and electrical skills or specific educational background to gain entry and develop into fully qualified trades personnel.
