Tri State Forest Products

Workforce Challenge

Tri State Forest Products was established in Gaylord, Michigan in the fall of 2013. According to Manager Wes, Michigan Works! staff Kathy visited the office before they had even opened. She wanted to welcome the new business and inform them of all the services offered to them, including the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), a possible tax credit if they hire veterans. When Tri State Forest Products was in need of a new driver, he contacted Michigan Works! to see about the possibilities.

Workforce Solution

Michigan Works! diligently searched for the right candidate, collecting resumes, screening applicants and sending potential matches to the company.

Outcomes & Benefits

A match was found! The new employee was also a veteran so Tri State Forest Products could take advantage of the WOTC. Wes said, “I appreciated her [Kathy] help and felt that I had a true partner in my search. I see Michigan Works! as a strong resource, and I was able to fulfill my need promptly and efficiently. The individual is working out exactly as I had hoped. I was also excited that I was able to put a veteran to work."
