Workforce Challenge

Chassix is now the industry’s largest, single integrated resource for high-quality, precision casting and machining solutions. The company has manufacturing capabilities in every key region of the world. They are always in need of skilled talent.

As a current contractor employee of Chassix, Jason was originally working through a staffing agency in a temp to hire position. With supervisory skills from his previous employer, he desired to take on more leadership and responsibility.

Workforce Solution

The Skilled Trades Training Fund enabled Chassix to hire 20 new employees, training them on-the-job to be more skilled and knowledgeable machine operators. Jason was included in this group, and he was hired as a Cell Leader.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result of this training, Jason's wages increased by $3 an hour. He says, “It all comes down to training. I like to ‘dig in’ and do more to be helpful and needed.” His manager commented, “Jason demonstrated not only quick learning ability, but also the leadership and dependability we needed. He has been a true success story for Chassix and I believe he will continue to be a key component of the future of the Howell plant."
