Mississauga, ON — FLO Components Ltd., a firm specializing in automatic greasing systems, is one of 16 Ontario employers being recognized for 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 in late June 2011.
Commenting on the award nomination, Chris Deckert, president of FLO Components said, “It was an honour to be nominated, 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.”
FLO also announced it has received the Lincoln Industrial Corp. Distinguished Distributor Award for 2010. This award is presented annually for outstanding sales performance to one or two distributors in North America. This is FLO’s fifth time receiving this particular recognition, the previous years being 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2007. FLO has been the leading distributor for Lincoln in Ontario since 1977.
On the Lincoln award, Deckert said, “Again, it’s about people helping people; it’s about everyone in the entire organization bending over backwards to respond quickly, install professionally and making sure the customer is happy. We thank everyone at FLO who keeps making us the best provider of quality customized lubrication solutions in Ontario … and our customers, who continue to trust us and allow us to be their long-term partner in success.”
