MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Flo Components is one of sixteen Ontario employers being recognized for their dedication to training the next generation of skilled workers and supporting the province’s economic future.

The annual Minister’s Awards for Apprenticeship Training celebrate employers that show leadership in training apprentices, support the apprenticeship training system, and promote careers in skilled trades. From 16 final nominees, four will be announced as 2011 winners later in June.
“It was an honour to be nominated,” said Chris Deckert, president of Flo Components. “Especially to be named with such other great organizations in industry as Mining Technologies International Inc. (North Bay) and Toromont CAT (Thunder Bay). The apprenticeship training system is something we believe in very strongly. We are committed to ‘Meeting Customers’ Needs Better,’ and the only way to do that is with qualified, well trained people. We see this as a necessary investment in the growth of our employees in order to continue providing superior service to our customers.”
