Workforce Challenge

With the automotive business booming, Thai Summit America needed to hire more workers in the production and skilled trades areas. Facing a very lean market, the company experienced difficulty finding qualified candidates. They were also hoping to train existing employees and promote from within.

Martin started his career as a die setter in a local Aluminum injection plant. He planned to move to the Howell area and needed to find a job that matched his skill set.

Workforce Solution

The Skilled Trades Training Fund provided the perfect opportunity for the company to hire contract associates, which created a job opportunity for Martin.

Soon Martin was hired with Thai Summit at their Aluminum Stamping Plant. He demonstrated great work ethic, drive and commitment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Since utilizing the Skilled Trades Training Fund Grant, over one hundred people have been hired. Martin was recommend by his supervisor to become a full-time employee, and he was soon after hired. Not even a month on the job, Martin was promoted to Team Leader on the 2nd shift and received a pay increase of over 40%.
