Haas/Thomas Skinner gets behind Skills Canada
- June 24, 2012
Haas Factory Outlet, a division of Thomas Skinner is supporting skilled trades with its national sponsorship of the Skills Canada competition.
The Skills Canada competition, held provincially and nationally, gives talented youth across Canada the opportunity to compete amongst their peers in a variety of skilled trades and technology categories. Every year more than 500 young people from across the country come together for a chance to win.
The main goal of Skills Canada is to provide competitors with hands-on work experience and to raise awareness among the general population about skilled trades.
Haas provided all of the machines used in the CNC machining competitions, supporting its continued committed to ongoing excellence in CNC manufacturing and education of the next generation of CNC manufacturing technologists.
Haas’s Technical Education Center (HTEC) is a global network and partnership between learning institutions, Haas Automation, and Haas Factory Outlets.
“We are very proud of our sponsorship role with Skills Canada, and are excited to be a part of moulding the next generation of skilled trade workers in the metalworking industry,” says Paul Krainer, owner and president of Thomas Skinner.
