Tri-Mach Group selected as Co-op Employer of the Year

June 15th, 2018

This morning at Elmira District Secondary School’s Annual Co-op Breakfast, Tri-Mach Group was presented with the Outstanding Co-op Education Employer Award for 2018. Tri-Mach Group has been taking on co-op students from local high schools for nearly 10 years. The four-month co-op program at Tri-Mach Group fills a variety of positions in the Fabrication Shop, as well as office positions in our Design Engineering, Finance, and Purchasing Departments. 

Tri-Mach Group’s co-op program has been such a success. Many students that Tri-Mach Group has employed later have gone on to fill permanent positions in the company. When Tri-Mach Group moved from Kitchener to the Elmira facility in 2012, they developed a strong relationship with the students and faculty in the co-op program at EDSS. Adam Chambers, one of Tri-Mach Group’s co-op students from the Fabrication Shop talks about his experience working in the co-op program:

“During my co-op placement, I learned a lot about the stainless steel industry and everything that comes with it. I learned how to weld and all about the process of welding. I also learned about how high the standard of work and quality of every piece of equipment and part that comes and leaves Tri-Mach Group.”

Tri-Mach Group would like to thank the faculty members from the Co-op Department at EDSS, especially Mike Forler who is retiring this year. Thank you for connecting us with such passionate and hard-working students who have made such an impact on the employees and success here at Tri-Mach Group. Tri-Mach Group is happy to see that this program is continuing to grow and that students are finding their passions in their work placements.
