MISSION EDC’S LATEST PROGRAM FOCUS ON STEM EDUCATION

Enginuity’s goal is to create a pipeline of future engineers and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) entrepreneurs that will help strengthen the manufacturing base that already exists in the Mission area. In March 2015, Jim Vander Kolk, President of Royal Technologies Corporation, reached out to Mission EDC and started discussions on a collaboration to help create an engineering program that will not only provide a pipeline of talented individuals for Royal Technologies but will also have a long term impact in the community.

“Investing in people is something that both Mission EDC and Royal Technologies strongly believe in. We know that economic development is not just about recruiting companies but creating a foundation of talented individuals that are prepared to address the challenges of the future. Jim is a visionary and an excellent corporate citizen. His leadership will help take the City of Mission to the next level, stated David Deanda, Mission EDC Board Chair.”
