Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Launches Diamondworks! Workforce Development Program

Nov. 29, 2021
The program will empower students, employees, and employers with the necessary skills to succeed in the automation industry.

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. is proud to announce the official launch of its workforce development program, ‘Diamondworks!’. Our mission is to educate the future workforce to be better prepared for roles in industries that are becoming increasingly automated. Industries such as packaging, manufacturing, metalworking, automotive, and logistics continue to advance in terms of automation equipment used and knowledge required to succeed. To support this initiative, Mitsubishi Electric will collaborate with educational facilities throughout the Americas. Mitsubishi Electric Automation will also work with industry associations that provide training and development, and organizations that promote manufacturing automation as a career.

As the manufacturing industry suffers a labor shortage exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, skilled workers with experience in automation are in high demand. Companies need workers who are trained to program, operate, and maintain advanced technology throughout their facilities. To meet this demand, Diamondworks! is designed to bring automation equipment, training, and curriculum to the next generation of the automation workforce. As a full-service automation provider, Mitsubishi Electric Automation is able to offer a broad offering of stand-alone CNC or robot training stands to fully integrated automation cells.

“At Mitsubishi Electric Automation, we have a proud history of investing in workforce development. We believe that the learners of today are the leaders of the future,” said Mark Werthman, senior director of engineered and project solutions. “We’re excited to be building a network of educational partnerships with technical colleges, universities, high schools, and training associations to provide students the educational equipment and curriculum they need to become leaders in the workforce,” added Tom Majewski, workforce development specialist.
