BRAMPTON, Ont. – Students at Mohawk College who hope to be a technician one day received a practical gift from Trailcon Leasing this week.
Trailcon Leasing donated this tractor-trailer to students at Mohawk College.
The company recently donated an up-to-date tractor-trailer for the students who are learning to repair, test, and maintain the complex systems of trucks and trailers, just like the one recently donated.
“The students benefit from working on a trailer that has up-to-date technologies, excellent diagnostics, and works with our scan tools,” said Angelo Cosco of the motive power group at Mohawk. “We can do air brake training, wheel services, body work, and panel replacement. There is even a working temperature controlled unit, so we can train refrigeration specialists, which are in huge demand.”
Trailcon’s vice-president, sales and marketing, Mike Krell said: “We’re always thinking about ways to build for the future. The aging workforce and resulting labour shortage is on everyone’s mind. That’s why we support educational partners like Mohawk and contribute to students through scholarships offered by the Toronto Transportation Club and Ontario Trucking Association.”
Cosco added that the college liked to say that graduates are “future ready.”
“We need vehicles and components that give our students the best possible experience,” he added. “The Trailcon trailer does that for us. It helps our students say to future employers, ‘Yes, I can do that.'”
