Axalta Coating Systems’ Mount Clemens, Mich., facility was presented with the MV2 certification at the Michigan Values Veterans conference presented by TMG, Inc. in Troy, Mich., last week. The certification is for the liquid and powder coating supplier’s pledge to hire and retain U.S. veterans.
“We are very excited to be one of the first companies involved with the Michigan Values Vets Initiative,” said Virginia Gronley, Axalta Learning and Development Consultant. “As one of Mount Clemens’ largest employers, we believe in attracting, hiring and retaining the best talent out there. And with the discipline and focus that many of our veterans have, it’s a great talent pool for us.”
MV2 is an economic investment initiative that offers an opportunity to recapitalize Michigan’s workforce while reducing veteran unemployment. If you’d like to learn more about the program, please visit michiganvaluesvets.com.
