A Sudbury mining supplier has been recognized for its contributions in training college students for work in the mining sector.

Hard-Line, which develops automation, teleoperation, and remote-control technology for the industry, has been acknowledged with Cambrian College’s Employer Award of Distinction.

The Sudbury college offers a number of mining-related programs, including mining engineering technology and mining engineering technician.

“It really is an honour to receive this award from Cambrian College, especially when you consider all the companies in the city that have a relationship with Cambrian,” said Ryan Siggelkow, Hard-Line’s senior vice-president of technology, in a news release.

“It’s been a very mutually beneficial relationship. We’ve been able to give on advisory committees and help out with the curriculum, and we get students from Cambrian to work with them on the right placements and co-ops, and then have them work for us after.”

The company also has offices in the U.S., Chile, and Peru, as well as a global network of distributors.
