The London job fair was well attended by job seekers, with visitors arriving well before the official start time of 2pm.
Our team was very busy from 2pm-6pm. It was a great opportunity to share information about SLEEGERS and to speak to candidates looking for work now and in the future. We encourage anyone looking to join an amazing team to speak with us at future events.
In 1963, Peter J. Sleegers founded a machine shop called London Metalizing & Machining Company Limited, located at 406 First Street in London. That original operation evolved over the years into SLEEGERS Engineered Products Inc., a company now operating from a facility located at 5 Cuddy Blvd in London, which is 15 times the size of the original operations.
SLEEGERS Engineered Products Inc. strives to raise the standard for excellence in the pressure vessel and propane industries. By combining engineering skill sets and industry expertise with innovative thinking, SLEEGERS develops and delivers exceptional quality products and services to fit the emerging needs of tier one customers in Canada and the United States. We look forward to the continuing evolution of our company.
The London and Area Works Job Fair was very well attended by job seekers, and we were kept busy from 2pm-6pm. We went in focused on looking for Welders, a Material Handler, and a Receiving Administrator, but had the opportunity to chat with many other skills sets as well. An overall successful recruiting event for SLEEGERS!
On February 13th SLEEGERS visited the Fanshawe Welding Class at the St. Thomas/Elgin Regional Campus. Members of our production team described their paths to their profession and what students could expect if they were working at SLEEGERS as welders. The students were then invited to visit our SLEEGERS facility in March.
On March 3rd, we welcomed the class for a tour of our production area and finished off the day with lunch and a fun welding competition. We hope through this partnership with Fanshawe St. Thomas, to encourage our welding artisans of the future to continue to pursue their passion.
SLEEGERS had a busy day at the Fanshawe Career Fair on March 8th. There were 170 employers in attendance and 50 on a wait list. It was a popular event!
Our team met with students non-stop from 10am-2pm. We went in with our main goal of meeting Welding and Engineering students and created specific brochures for those opportunities; however, we also spoke with many Supply Chain Management students and Welding and Fabrication students interested in Summer and future Co-Op opportunities. It was a remarkably successful day.
The London and Area Works Job Fair provides an opportunity for our team to meet in person with top local talent. In 2022, our HR & Production teams had a wonderful time meeting with job seekers at White Oaks Mall and discussing the great opportunities SLEEGERS has to offer! We want you to work with us and encourage you to check our website regularly for newly posted opportunities.
The Canadian Propane Association presented SLEEGERS with the Innovation Award for its portable evacuation system. It’s the only award that can be given to individuals/companies inside or outside of CPA membership that contribute to the advancement of the propane industry.
Sleegers Engineered Products Inc.’s portable evacuation system provides a safe way to evacuate a motor vehicle tank to safely service the pump. It helps to protect human life, property, and the environment. Its system eliminates risk, saves hours of time, and recycles stranded fuel.
Guy Marchand of P38 was celebrated for making significant and consistent outstanding contributions to the advancement of the Canadian propane industry and received a 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award.
