WorldSkills International is happy to welcome Mastercam and its expertise in CNC machining software to the Global Partner group. Mastercam products are sold through their worldwide network of certified value-added Resellers. Their Resellers provide the highest level of service, including product training, start-up services, and ongoing support, being a Global Partner helps to bring skills excellence to the WorldSkills Members.
David Hoey, CEO of WorldSkills International, was pleased to bring Mastercam into the partnership. “At WorldSkills, we are looking for the best industry partners globally that believe in the WorldSkills mission and vision, and collectively want to improve the world with the power of skills. Mastercam supports our goals and wants to help us in the machining arena increase the excellence in skills. I look forward to working closely with Mastercam throughout this partnership.”
For Meghan West, President of CNC Software, Inc. / Mastercam, partnering with WorldSkills made strategic sense. “For more than 20 years, Mastercam has proudly held the designation of Exclusive CAM Partner at WorldSkills, and the transition to a Global Partner further solidifies our relationship and commitment to the Competition. We are excited for the future of both the WorldSkills events, as well as the future of manufacturing and skilled trades as a whole.”
The partnership with Mastercam and WorldSkills begins in early 2016 but the long-term strategies and partnerships are already being discussed. We look forward to working together.
