Spotlight on Partners
ArcelorMittal Dofasco Enterprise Training Centre
One of Mohawk’s longest-standing partners continues to invest in students with a pair of million dollar gifts.
In 2006, ArcelorMittal Dofasco made the first corporate donation to support the transformation of Mohawk’s skilled trades campus in Stoney Creek. Last November, the company once again made the first corporate donation to help build The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation.
“We’re much more than a steel company,” says ArcelorMittal President and CEO Sean Donnelly. “In truth, we are an engineering and technology organization and our strength is people. MohawkCollege is a big part of the people equation of our company. We’re the kind of company that demands a workforce that is, as Mohawk College says,Future Ready.”
ArcelorMittal Dofasco and Mohawk operate the largest apprenticeship program in Ontario and the company employs more than 300 college graduates.
“Our partnership with Mohawk is a natural one,” saysSean. “We commend the college for launching the largest renewal of technology labs and classrooms in its 50-year history.”
