Métalus, proud partner of VIP Metal 2015!

IMG_0001On March 25th, April 1st and 15th, 2015 Métalus hosted 20 students under the VIP Metal days.

Each participant received shoes with steel cap, safety goggles, earplugs, and VIP Metal t-shirts from generous partners involved in this project. Transportation and meals were provided by the training center Paul Rousseau.

The main objective of these VIP Metal days was to familiarize them with jobs related to sheet metal working.

They had a chance to weld steel and aluminum and they used our press brakes to fold aluminum.

They left with their achievements and they enjoyed their VIP Metal day!
