Hamilton, Ontario-based Mobel Cabinetry recently launched a new initiative program to attract more women into the cabinetry industry.
The program, developed in partnership with the Wood Manufacturing Council, offers a free, 12-week intensive program that teaches women, 18 to 30 years old, in cabinetry development. The training program will be followed by a three-month work-placement program with local companies.
The program will cover all aspects of cabinet manufacturing, with a special focus being placed on installation given the growing demand for installers.
Speaking to CHCH News, Richard Lipman, president of the WMC, said the women are “getting a chance to build, to install, to learn the theory and see all of the aspects of the company, see all of the different departments and things and it's really a comprehensive program.”
