Pazmac Enterprises Ltd’s pristine machine shop was the setting for the recent campaign promoting BCIT’s trades programs. The grads (above, left to right) pictured above are Dave Anderson, CNC Machinist Technician and Nino Bucceri, Machinist. Rob Baxter, on the right, has studied welding at BCIT.
With Pazmac’s permission, this photo was seen across the Lower Mainland in multiple settings, including being distributed as a postcard at the Canucks Superskills Competition in January.
The photo was also used in newspaper ads, on bus kings, and restobar ads throughout the campaign, and on the BCIT homepage for trades and apprenticeship.
BCIT grads get hired, “because we look for quality, and that is what BCIT has… quality programs,” said Tim Walls, president of Pazmac, while speaking to BCIT machinist trades students recently. “We also look for the right personality to fit with our team,” he said.
Pazmac has long-term employees and rewards the successes that hard work brings. For example, BCIT graduate Dave Anderson was first hired for the Pazmac warehouse where his work ethic, attitude, and aptitude were recognized. Four years ago when the opportunity for an apprenticeship arose, Dave was brought forward. Shortly after these photos were taken, Dave passed his final exam for his Journeyman CNC Machinist credential.
