Deltech’s president appointed to ACDW board
The Adams County Colorado Workforce Development board recently appointed Deltech’s co-owner and president to their board of directors. The appointment is for a three year period with an option on an additional three.
The board serves under the direction of Adams County’s board of commissioners. It’s stated mission is to “Create opportunities for success by connecting businesses to a quality workforce.” Board members include a county commissioner, representatives from local economic development, the State of Colorado Division of Labor and Employment, manufacturing, metalworking, utilities, health care providers, unions, local colleges, and a vocational training program for high school students.
Dr. Stevenson, who also serves on the board of Colorado Manufacturer’s Edge, was recommended by Lisa Hough, president and CEO of Adams County Regional Economic Partnership. Deltech Furnaces is a member of the organization, and Dr. Stevenson has worked on various community efforts to increase opportunities for job seekers and employers beginning when the company relocated to Adams County in 2003. These include working on a taskforce with other manufacturers and representatives from Front Range Community College to make curriculum recommendations for planned training programs in CAD and electrical wiring and safety, among others. Also, Deltech annually participates in the Adams County Education Consortium’s Career Fair for 8th graders and their Classroom to Career Symposium for graduating seniors held at Metro State University.
Deltech hired a student from Bollman Technical Center for the summer of 2022. He graduated high school this year and is now a full-time non-seasonable employee. He hopes to continue to develop and build on the skills he acquired at Bollman and at Deltech.
The ability to use hand and power tools, read Cad drawings, accurately measure, and perform basic arithmetical functions are essential for employment in our production department. And did I mention attention to detail and patience? The lack of either can result in a shoddy work product and rejection by our quality control team.
