Port Hardy processing plant recognized for commitment to trades
20 July, 2016 - Port Hardy, B.C.
Representatives from the Industry Training Authority (ITA) dropped by Marine Harvest’s processing plant in Port Hardy last month to officially recognize the company’s commitment to training apprentices and investing in B.C.’s skilled labour workforce. Seven tradespeople are employed at the facility, with three more in training. Trades employed at the plant include millwright, refrigeration, wastewater treatment, and warehousing.
“A big part of our success at our plant is because of our professional group of tradespeople,” said Maintenance Manager Andy Beech while accepting a Certificate of Recognition from Doug Podetz, Apprenticeship Advisor at ITA.
The ITA leads and coordinates British Columbia’s trades system with a mandate to develop a skilled workforce that is ready to meet the challenges of B.C.’s expanding industries.
