Winnipeg, Manitoba – Today, Red River College (RRC) is proud to accept the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) Manitoba distinguished Partner Award – recognizing the College as a leader in training, programming and applied research for the province’s robust aerospace and manufacturing industries.
“As Manitoba’s largest institute of applied learning we are proud to play a critical role in driving Manitoba’s economy,” said Paul Vogt, RRC President and CEO.
“Since we first opened our doors, the College has been central to the growth and success of our Province, and has continually responded to the ever-increasing demand for highly trained and highly skilled graduates to meet the needs of businesses and industry. We are honoured to be recognized by CME Manitoba for our efforts, and to accept the Partner Award this evening.”
Each year, CME Manitoba’s Partner Award is presented to an organization that has made a notable contribution to the Manitoba manufacturing and exporting community.
It recognizes partners and service providers who demonstrate a measureable impact on the growth, sustainability or mission of manufacturing companies. Recipients are widely recognized for their integrity, dedication and collaboration in service to manufacturing.
“One of our key priorities at the College is to foster strategic partnerships that allow us to drive research and innovation by matching industry problems and needs with College expertise, resources, capabilities, and facilities,” said Vogt.
“These partnerships are the backbone of the advancements we are seeing in the aerospace and manufacturing industries here in Manitoba. We must continue to grow and compete here at home, and on the global stage, with the latest research, state-of-the-art technology, and a highly trained workforce that has the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of industry today, and the future.”
RRC President and CEO, Paul Vogt, will accept the award this evening on behalf of the College at the 2018 CME Gala Awards Dinner, held at the RBC Convention Centre during Manitoba Manufacturing Week.
