The key to our position in the marketplace is Brillcast's continued commitment to hiring the best people in their field and then giving them the education, training and technology necessary to succeed at their profession. In conjunction with local universities, a comprehensive certification program has been implemented for die cast operators. Graduates can earn 35 college credit hours that may be applied towards an associate's degree. Brillcast operators spend 12 weeks working in the Process Engineering group.
This cross training experience gives them the opportunity to better understand their role in reducing variation in the die casting manufacturing process. The engineering co-op program has also proven to be an excellent source of new technical talent for Brillcast. At any given time, between two and four students are in the program. As part of their B.S. program, the students spend two years working in all major functions of the business, enabling them to contribute to the company's progress immediately upon graduation.
