Manufacturing Skills Training

Associates at Tusco are hired for general labor, powdercoating, welding, machine operating and machine set up throughout the plant. Much of the training at Tusco takes place on the job. Compensation is set up so that associates are paid for their skills. We hire unskilled workers; if you don’t have the necessary skills, you can earn a raise by learning one. Once you’ve trained and learned those processes, you can become certified by passing a skill test.

Academic & Leadership Training

Tusco associates regularly participate in programs like Leadership Tuscarawas, where they have the opportunity to learn and grow as career and community focused individuals. We also hire students in full-time and internship positions, so they can work and learn new skills while pursing higher education at local universities. Tusco is also provides tuition assistance.

Associates have opportunities to attend workshops and conferences in their fields of interest. For example, groups of associates attend FABTECH as well as CRM/ERP system, CAD design software and marketing conferences.
