Red-D-Arc Supports Grimsby Welding Program

23 December, 15 12:02 pm · Leave a comment · Colin Brown

Red-D-Arc-Grimsby-SecondaryRed-D-Arc is supporting the development of future welding industry professionals thanks in large part to Joe Nagy – Regional Operations Manager for Canada. Joe reached out to Ed Stavnitzky, student achievement leader from the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) and welding instructor Bill Meloche from the Grimsby Ontario High school welding tech shop to discuss ways in which Red-D-Arc could support their efforts. The DSBN adult welding program trains adults to CWB standard 4G and prepares them for a career in the welding industry. Red-D-Arc provided nine wire feed packages and a plasma machine; helping to get this community project off the ground. Ten students started the program in the Summer of 2015 and eight finished with all position CWB certification. Ed and Bill recently informed Joe that seven of the eight graduates are employed in welding or welding related industries throughout the region. Joe has since reached out to Dan Tadic Executive Director at the Canadian Welding Association (CWA) and is in discussions to partner with the CWA Foundation Charity to help students, institutions and industries right across Canada.
