Rochester, N.Y., November 18, 2020 – Optimation won the Manufacturing Innovation award from the Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Awards yesterday afternoon with our co-winner H.P.Hood! It takes an entire company to win an award of this caliber, we owe a huge congratulations to all our 200 employees that are the heart of Optimation. We also want to thank our clients for bringing innovative ideas to us and continue to trust us to get the job done.
Sean DeNeef, an Optimation Pipefitter Apprentice, won the Apprenticeship of the year award. DeNeef began the program in October 2018. He is a veteran of the United States Army, serving overseas in Afghanistan and Korea as a Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic. He attained an Auto Mechanical Technical Certificate from the Wayne Technical Career Center in High School and has worked as a mechanic in a variety of jobs. We have found that a background in auto mechanics is a good precursor for any of our construction trades. It encompasses elements of mechanical, electrical, hydraulics, pneumatics, welding, troubleshooting, precise measurements, and integration of systems. DeNeef chose to pursue the NYS sponsored Apprenticeship Program with Optimation to expand his trade knowledge and skills, and to broaden his horizons with a dynamic company that works within a wide variety of industries.
Given the amount of uncertainty that 2020 has brought our world, we are feeling incredibly thankful for the opportunities we have had. We also would like to thank the RTMA for giving us the opportunity to win these awards.
